Help with Using this Site


This site is best viewed at a screen width of 1024. To utilise all the effects and facilities on these web pages please ensure your browser is up to date (this site does not fully support Internet Explorer 6 or 7)..


The content of each page appears in this central white panel. The arrow at the bottom of each page moves the focus to the top of the page and the menu.


The horizontal and left-hand navigation menus list site sections and their pages on drop-down menus.

The site can also be navigated from the Site Map.

Search Engines

The Search page allows the site to be searched for words on Google or via the tagging system. This search is also available on each page at upper right.

Access Options

Top right are options to make the text larger and/or change the background colour. If Cookies are enabled on your browser, the text options will apply to all subsequent pages of the site.

The facility to make the text bigger may be preferable to changing browser View-Text Size settings, as it predominately adjusts just the content text without distorting the layout. 

All pages are WAI AAA-Approved to the extent of passing the automatic aspects of the online test for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 as issued by the W3C Web Access Initiative.

As an alternative to navigation, all pages can be accessed from the Site Map.


Your browser will print just the content of the page without the menus or header. The content should fit to A4 paper width if the margins of the printer are properly adjusted.
