This strategy is in line with that used in software development. You will notice in applications like Microsoft Word you always type the text in the lighter area and the darker area is the headings. The flip side is that if your background is a light color then the text being entered must be a dark color and for the headings if your heading backgrounds are dark then the text should be light.
