How to best view this site.

This page covers the following topics:

How to View this site

This site is best viewed with a screen size of 800 x 600 pixels with High Color depth (16bit) or better.

Each browser displays web sites differently however most browsers should allow you to view these pages adequately, however it is recommend that you use Netscape Navigator 4 or above, or Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or above for optimum results. Some design elements of this site only work in Internet Explorer.  If you don't have either of these browsers, you can download them for free.

Download Netscape - Download Internet Explorer 

For optimum results images on the Internet  should be viewed in full color mode (16 bit) or better. If your monitor is set it to 256 colors, you are going to see some dithering. If the images on this site appear "pixelly" or "grainy" to you as you view them, your PC is not set to view web sites in "High Color" mode.

In 256 color mode your browser is "dithering" the colors of the images to display them in 256 colors. Dithering is a process that your computer uses to try to closely match a color to one of it's 256 colors. This process leaves the images with many pixels or dots. High Color mode works best for viewing web sites. It uses 64 thousand colors to view images and allows you so see images as they are supposed to be viewed.

Setting Your Monitor for 800 x 600 pixels

Screen resolution setting is an important factor in the size of and how much information your monitor can display. If everything looks really big on your screen, or many of the web pages you view require you to scroll left to right in addition to down, then your screen is set to a low resolution allowing only a certain amount of information to be displayed. If you increase the amount of pixels your monitor displays you can view more on your screen regardless of the actual size. By following the instructions below you will greatly improve your monitor's appearance and make the overall web experience more enjoyable.

Font Sizes - How to Adjust the Font Size in Your Browser

Many of the latest browsers allow the view to increase or decrease the size of the on screen fonts. While this allows people to increase font size to suit their needs, it can also cause the page to become very ugly. For best results you should view this site with your text set to 12 (Netscape) or Medium (I.E). However, if you need to increase the font size here's how:

Netscape Navigator/Communicator 4+

Pressing Ctrl + ] (that is, hold down a Ctrl key and press the ] key) will increase the font size. Pressing Ctrl + [ will decrease the font size. These commands are also available from the View menu. You can press Ctrl + ] several times to adjust the text size to one that is suited to you. 

Netscape Navigator 3 and below 

Choose the Options / General Preferences... menu item and click on the Fonts tab. There you will find two Choose Font buttons, one for the Proportional Font text, and one for Fixed Font text. Click on each Choose Font button in turn, and adjust the point size to one which is suited to you. 

Microsoft Internet Explorer 3+

Under the View / Fonts menu you will find five choices for font size:
Largest, Larger, Medium, Smaller, and Smallest. The default setting is Medium.  IE 3 also has a button for this on the toolbar. Pressing the button repeatedly cycles through the available font sizes.
