+        The <a>LightLevelEvent</a> interface provides web
+        developers information about the ambient light

+      <p>
+        The values of the <a>LightLevelEvent</a> event may
+        be "normal", "dim", or "bright".  "bright" is
+        supposed to mean "direct sunlight, or similarly
+        bright conditions that make it hard to see things
+        that aren't high-contrast".  "dim" is supposed to
+        mean "dark enough that the light produced by a white
+        background is eye-straining or distracting".  The
+        lux values for "dim" typical begin below 50, and the
+        values for "bright" begin above 10000.

         This is achieved by interrogating a photosensors or similar detectors
