I don't know that it is defined anywhere. There is just a certain shade
that many designers use. Opera's accessibility style is slightly darker
than the colour that I'm thinking of. (But if I compared all the styles
side by side that I think are using that shade I'd probably find that
there is quite a bit of variation between the pale greens!)

Yes, that's easy on my eyes, maybe a tad more contrast: #cccccc
background with #444444 text or #eeeeee background with the #666666
text. That colour combination works well (for me) the other way around:
background #666666 with #cccccc text.
