What are good colors to use for a terminal window (text and background) to minimize eye strain/damage? I feel like someone, maybe a design or medical professional, must have done research on this topic, but my search has only turned up results based on what people think is pretty.
I'm hesitant to ask on SU because I suspect there's no single perfect answer, but even general guidelines -- light on dark vs. dark on light, complementary color combinations -- would be helpful.
EDIT: I used to like light gray on black, myself, but my new work monitor leaves greenish and purplish tinges around the edges of the letters with gray on black. I suspect it's an LCD thing. That's what motivated the question, anyways.
