Printing

There are two ways to print from this website:

  1. The standard 'File - Print' method that you would use in many programs has a special style sheet attached to it, ensuring that navigation menus and other images will not be printed. Only a small header and footer in addition to the main text content will be printed
  2. Clicking the print icon where available will bring up a new window showing you a preview of what that article would look like when printed. You can then use 'File - Print' to print the article.

Text Size

All text sizes in CSS on a standards compliant browser, such as Mozilla Firefox, are fluid and can be changed by the user. Should you feel that the text is either too small to read or too large, you may change this in several ways listed below:

  • In most browsers, you can hold the CTRL key and scroll the wheel on your mouse
  • In Mozilla Firefox (and others): Using the main program menu, View > Text Size > [Option] will enable you to adjust the font sizes to suit your preference
