Layout

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. Users can change the style sheets in their browsers to make viewing easier for their individual requirements. All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.

Colors and Contrast

As an aid to readability we have tried to ensure a good level of contrast between text and background colors. On certain browsers you can override our design and use your own preferred color scheme. Instructions on how to change background and font colors for common web browsers appear below; for other setups you will need to consult your browser's help pages.

Microsoft Internet Explorer (versions 5 and 6)

Mozilla Firefox
