I've noticed this is a number of places. On a regular android device, the text will show up, but on the nook touch, the text is invisible. I'm guessing it's because it's in a color that too close to white, so the reader renders it as white on white. If you have the gmail app on your nook touch, open the settings and swipe to the 2nd page. The bottom two 'settings' are useles. One is a checkbox and the other a dropdown/popup. So my question is: Is there a setting within Android somewhere, that can force all fonts to either black or 50% grey (whichever is closer)? Or, I'd be happy with just black. I'd be happy to hear anyone elses solution to this, and will report back if I find anything.
