comment Can placing dark and light elements or blocks next to each other in a UI lead to problems in visual perception?
@JohnGB Yes, that is correct.

In the examples above, my eyes were drawn immediately to the dark areas, then the secondary light areas. I believe attention is drawn to unique areas of a page rather than brighter areas. E.g. in your answer, the text that one's eyes are drawn towards is the bolded text, which appears darker than the rest of the text.
