: You will probably not be surprised to hear that we've had quite a few emails like yours. The problem seems to be that quite a lot of the pages were designed using macs and relatively good monitors. It wasn't until the site went live that we realised that what looks extremely legible to us is often almost impossible to read for people using certain combinations of PCs and monitors (esp those with less than 256 colours, which can sometimes not handle the background colour, and instead make a dotty pattern).

: Increasing the number of colours on your monitor may help. As may increasing the contrast/ brightness.

I am using 256 colors and the contrast is just fine. Maybe the color palettes in the Mac
world don't map well to those in the PC world.
