Try one of these for as anonymous monk
And then view a few tutorials, say PerlMonks for the Absolute Beginner and How (Not) To Ask A Question ( near the top of the list ), how do they compare?

I do know why jeffa used readmores in How (Not) To Ask A Question, its because its recommended.
A #eeeeee background messes with the contrast , its just not black/white
I can understand why authors of Tutorials want to have visual distinction for readmore tags when editing Tutorials, but readers of Tutorials don't need that information, its visual interference -- aren't Tutorials something we want visitors to read?
