comment Light text on a dark background vs. dark text on a light background: which allows the reader to keep focusing for longer?
Unfortunately, I don't have the free time to dig up 40-odd years of references. What I've given here is what I've also found to be true in practice and is easily tested for oneself. The one part that you might find difficult to track down, I suspect, is the vision information. I've linked to a page with a number of excellent articles.

Best you expand this answer to explicitly lay out the basics. You can't guarantee that particular video is going to be online or at that location forever, so the essentials should be here regardless of the link.
