And so say we all...

Is there anything worse than white or yellow subtitles against a white background?  Or black against black?   If the United Nations wants to do something useful, it ought mandate that all subtitles be   yellow with black borders!  -- Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

Your Say

If people would just speak English like everyone else, the whole subtitle thing would be a non-issue.

Yellow letters with black borders were a standard for a long time in the subtitling of anime (a.k.a. Japanese animation), and it does work pretty well.

But some people have to try something different, and re-invent the wheel, I guess.
