Site help & accessibility

On this page you can find out

Readable with any modern browser

This web site was designed to be readable in any modern, standards-based web browser, and uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout. The site uses relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size” option in visual browsers. If you are using Internet Explorer, for example, you can make your default text size larger under the View menu by selecting Text Size, Larger (or Largest).

If your browser or browsing device does not support CSS at all, the content of each page is still readable.

Older browsers get the “no CSS” treatment by default, because their support for CSS is so poor. If you are still using one of these old browsers, find out how you can upgrade to a better web browsing experience.
