White text on image backgrounds

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I was a bit worried about trying white text on dark images in case Google
downgraded the page for hidden text penalty, so I did an experiment starting
on 4th August with an unspecified (default) background colour, a dark
background image and white text.  The result is that page works fine with
PR=4 and inclusion in the SERP for <white text on image>

Here is a good news link about one of the world's largest robotic
telescopes, for anyone interested.

Best regards, Eric.
