I totally concur about the low contrast fonts. Accessibility gurus say 
DON'T DO THIS.

People with aging eyes - like me - find these fonts significantly harder 
to read. People with genuine vision impairments find them simply 
impossible, often.

Iron rule: if you put something on a website which people are expected 
to read, make it black font against a light background. Large fonts can 
be reverse-color - IF distinctly large AND well contrasted with a dark 
back ground. This is a basic design aspect of webpages (or CSS sheets) 
which MUST be attended to if usability matters to anyone at all.
