    Lightbulb Which way is it easier to read

    I need your opinions. On http://www.croatiankid.com/blog/, I've been editing the CSS, changing the appearance of the posts. You'll see that on the post on the top of the page, the lines of the text are a little more spaced from eachother, than they are on the other two posts on the page (scroll down to see them). I want to know which way you like it better, i.e. which one do you feel more comfortable reading.

    Update: I've added a new post, which is written in the 'condensed (lines more together)' style. The post 'Croatian education swindled by government' is the 'wider (lines spread appart more)' style. which do you like better?

    Definently the space between words and lines.

    Much easier to read.

    The original way you had it I found myself looking at the screen toooooo closely and actually ended up rereading same line twice.

    So definently go with the newer style

    I'm with the others--more space is better.

    Yeah, the extra space makes it easier on the eyes and allows for those who will read it to not struggle. This is actually one good reason why teachers and professors prefer papers to not be single-spaced. :-)
    PHP Code:
    $hello file_get_contents('hello.txt'); echo $hello
    hello

    I've made it a bit narrower, is it okay now, or was it better b4?

    Legibility

    Since you line length is moderate the difference isn't too great, but personally I find the slightly more spaced one easier to read; especially moving one's eyes to the beginning of the next line is easier. I wouldn't space it out any more, though.
