Hints on Using this Site

The site is designed to respond to device screen size and to present the best possible viewing experience for the visitor no matter how they view the site.

Different Browsers — Different Experiences
Unlike printed documents, each browser can display pages differently even within the same operating system.
You should be able to view the content on this site with any browser although your experience may not be optimal when using older browsers.
Use a Recent Web Browser
Running obsolete (unsupported or unpatched) software makes you vulnerable and puts everyone at risk by allowing the spread of malware, viruses and security holes that can be exploited by hackers, governments and other parties that threaten our privacy.
Mozilla's Updates Make Us All Stronger has instructions for updating Windows, Mac, Linux, iPhone, Android plus current browsers and their plugins.
You can download a current browser that displays this site as it was intended from the Russ Harvey's Web Browser page.
Text May Be Enlarged/Reduced
Text sizes may be increased/decreased in modern browsers if you have difficulty viewing the default sizes or if the default sizing doesn't work for you. This function varies by browser and version, but try holding down the
Ctrl button and pressing:
+(plus) to increase the text size;
-(minus) to decrease the text size; and
0(zero) to reset the page to 100% (the default) — not supported in IE.
The Zoom function is usually located in the
View menu when menus are displayed. Most modern browsers have hidden these settings to preserve the space at the top of the page because newer monitors are wider but not as tall. Look for the Zoom settings in the Options or Toolbar icons.
Several documents on this site are provided in PDF, a format that displays content correctly whatever program created it.
A number in brackets — e.g. (PDF–250 KB) — indicates the size of the document in Kilobytes (KB) or Megabytes (MB).
Firefox & Other Browsers will Display PDFs
In most cases, these documents will display inside current versions of browsers like Firefox.
However, some features (like auto-fill) may not work, in which case you'll need to open the PDF in a dedicated PDF reader that has the ability to manage these extras.
Nitro PDF Reader Recommended
Nitro Reader or Nitro Pro are recommended.
- Nitro Reader is the best free PDF reader and viewer. Create, review, sign, and share PDFs.
- Nitro Pro (free to try; US$199.99 to buy) allows you to create professional quality PDF documents that anyone can view, with any PDF reader, on virtually any device.
Adobe Reader Vulnerable
Adobe Reader is a known vulnerability. You should uninstall it and replace it with an alternative.
