Support – Technical matters
We have tried to develop this site so that it looks good whatever screen size you use. However, if you have reduced the site display (the part of the screen that is used to display this web site), perhaps by using part of the screen to display the Favourites or History information recorded by your browser or perhaps by not having the site display at maximum size, you may cause some of the pages to look strangely (eg by having text, links, or pictures wrapped in ways they were not designed for). To get the best view of the pages in this site we suggest that you turn off the display of Favourites or History (or similar) information or otherwise maximise the site display whilst you are looking through the site. The same thing applies to almost every web site that you visit.
Throughout most of the site we have used a font size that should be easy for most users to read but don’t forget that many browsers have a Text Size function (often within a View menu) that enables you to enlarge or shrink text. The site has been designed with a Medium text size setting in mind. If your mouse has a scroller, you should be able to magnify or reduce the screen by holding down the Ctrl button and rolling up or down the mouse’s scroller. To use just the keyboard, hold down the Ctrl button and press + or -.
The site should appear basically the same in all the main browsers. Earlier versions of this site had problems in the past with certain browsers when they released updates which changed they way they dealt with various things. However, I am very hopeful that this new version will be robust enough to stand up to future updates or, at the very least, be easily updated to deal with major changes by the major browsers.
