On the other hand, this is not a matter of importance, or is it?

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?

Maybe lower the brightness of your monitor a click or two (a bar or two) and read them again, how do they compare?

If you've got LCD monitor, move your head above/below/left/right, how do they compare?

Try the same with no-stylesheet (firefox Alt+View+Page Style+No Style ), how do they compare?

I don't know why jdporter didn't use readmore in PerlMonks for the Absolute Beginner but I can guess because its easier to read.

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?
