I have a dark gray brick image I want to use as the background for my site. The problem is that this doesn't contrast well with the font color, and I do not want white/bright colored font.
So I was wondering what the pro's do in this type of situation??
Thanks in advance for your thoughts

Hehe, the basic answer is that you can't keep your cake and eat it too. Something will need to give.
A half-way house is to put a semi-transparent background color on the content area, so that the background image is still visible through this background color but is less dark. E.g.
background: white; /* fallback for old browsers that don't support rgba */
