greyness
n. A measure of the amount of type on a newspaper page.

Example Citation:
"At first glance, the most striking feature of the National Post is that it's clearly a paper to be read and not flipped through. The quality called 'greyness,' meaning large areas of unrelieved type, has become the enemy of newspaper designers, but the Post dares to be grey."
—Robert Fulford, "Postpartum impressions," Toronto Life
