If I look at the whole page and ask myself "how's the gradient look?", I think
it's a little unusual but fine. But when I actually spend time reading, I keep
getting really annoyed by it. It's makes reading and skimming more difficult. 
web just does not look like this normally, and it seems like it will be
strange/confusing/more difficult to read for a significant portion of people. I
think it should be changed.

Suggestions for improvement:
* Revert it. Make it like other gnu.org manuals.
* Any solid off-whitish background color (my preference).
* Use a gradient with much less contrast. example:
