A white-on-black theme for the Sphinx documentation generator. It has slightly muted white text on various shades of dark grey. I created this as I find light-on-dark themes typically easier on the eyes, since I tend to use dark backgrounds on my terminals and I don't like flicking between light and dark backgrounds frequently.

It uses a subtle text shadow and rounded corners to improve legibility, but it should also render accpetably on browsers which don't support these CSS features.

The theme should cover most common constructions, but it's possible there are some classes I've missed. It also includes a Pygments theme which I think complements it without being overly bright.
