The site is navigated by choosing a main subject from the left vertical index and then choosing its subcategory from the right vertical index. Another main category is then chosen from the left and its subcategory from the right, and so on.
Navigation links

For non-scripted browsers, available links are shown on the lower right of each centre page.

For Internet viewing, this site loads best on 36K or faster modems. If you are experiencing long wait-times as the indexes load on your computer, turn off JavaScript/ActiveX Scripting in your browser's preferences. This will freeze and disable the indexes. Standard navigation links are provided at the bottom right of each page.

MS Internet Explorer has a default display of "large" fonts, so be sure to check "smallest" or "small" for font display on this site. While a web-palette was used, this site is optimized for viewing on an Apple display, in order to deliver uniform colour to at least one platform. All images have been balanced with Apple ColorSync, so if they appear too bright or dark throughout the site, check your monitor's settings. Windows computers use many different colour management systems and video drivers. If you are using Windows or a UNIX box, you will view this site (and other sites) best in thousands of dithered colours.

Java runtime does not have to be enabled to view this site.

Viewing PDF files by using the Adobe PDF browser plugin disables the central right scroll bar in Netscape Navigator. This is an issue with the Acrobat plugin for Macintosh. Scrolling is still possible by click-dragging down at the bottom of the central window. If you find this work-around is unfavorable, simply save the PDF for viewing in Acrobat Reader with a right-click (Win) or option+click (Mac) on the PDF link.

If you are using MS Internet Explorer 5.5SP2 or higher (including 6.x), you will require the QuickTime ActiveX fix. Netscape and Quicktime are not Microsoft products, and Microsoft removed support for Netscape-compatible plugins like QuickTime from Internet Explorer. Apple immediately created the ActiveX fix for you until IE6 compatibility is incorporated into the next Quicktime plugin.

A JavaScript-enabled browser is required. Netscape Navigator 4.6 or Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 are recommended. Images should also be set to load automatically in your browser's preferences.
