Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
I'm in no way visually disabled, but reading large groupings of text in nightmode makes my eyes hurt!

Describe the solution you'd like
A lighter font weight for regular text in dark mode. Details here:

Describe alternatives you've considered
Unsure, I imagine this will be far far far down on the totem pole anyhow.

Additional context
This showcases how the font weight is hard to distinguish and how "clumped" the text is.

I think this makes sense. Since we have separate controls for font and theme, I think it might make sense to offer the proposed solution here as a font variation. Users could be instructed that they may want to choose the lighter font weight alongside dark mode.

Does that make sense?

Yeah, that would make sense, makes it more adaptable for device differences. Thanks for checking this out!
