I too don't really have problems visiting either types of websites. I think
the eye strain phenomena most people experience is not because dark-on-light
is actually better but because most computer use is set in a dark-on-light
world and so when that is changed you get the afterimage sensation. I think
it all mainly comes down to the overall lighting in whatever setting you're
in. If you're in a very bright-lit setting (i.e. it's afternoon and you've
got all the windows open in your home/office) your eyes won't like
light-on-dark, but if you're in a low-lit setting your eyes prefer
light-on-dark. I've noticed an interesting trend in television actually that
changes its advertisements according to the time of day. During the day most
advertisements use color schemes with dark-on-light, but once evening comes
around and you're watching tv on your couch in the low-lit living room all
the sudden ads become dark-on-light when they're a lot of text. The eyes
adjust the best this way. About eight years ago I actually came up with a
website concept that would change its color theme based on the time of day
the user was experiencing. That would be neat.

 I wouldn't mind having a copy of the PSD actually. I'd like to convert it
to vector form (Illustrator) and can output to SVG from there. It's good
practice to have all artwork in vector-form anyway.
