Please ignore this page unless you need, or are interested in, this technical information. Several viewers have asked about specific issues related to viewing or printing these pages and so some explanation is given below.
The site is optimised for viewing with Internet Explorer 4.0 and later versions at a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels on a 15” screen (or larger), but should still work adequately with other browsers and at other resolutions and screen sizes.
As of December 2007, the width of the pages has been increased. This will mean that screens of less than 1024 pixels may have to scroll left and right to see the full page.
The explanations given below are for Explorer 6.0.
Pictures and Photographs
Apologies to viewers who are on narrowband as some pages, especially those with photographs, may take some time to download. Where possible, a choice between medium and high resolution is offered. The high resolution photographs are up to 1280 by 960 pixels, whilst the medium resolution are up to 640 by 480 pixels.
To help speed up the downloading problem, most pictures and photographs are initially displayed as small thumbnails, which if clicked on will expand to a separate page with a larger resolution picture. To return to the main web page, click on the green Back button.
In some cases, links to high resolution pictures are provided and these may exceed the size of any smaller screens, in which case you may have to scroll the page to see all parts of the picture.
Should you wish to print a page from this site you will need to do so in landscape orientation, rather than portrait. From the File pull down menu, select Page Setup, then click the Landscape button at the bottom left of the dialogue box. You can then check if this is correct by selecting Print Preview before selecting Print.
