I do not know what the study is but I find black very boring.
I find the blue headings actualy more pleasurable to read.
I'd wish for the blue if you don't have a strong opinion.
I really like the W3C style blue headings. I agreed on the
grey tables with hesitation. Now everything is turning back
to monochommatic grey again. Gimme back my blues... I love
the blues....
