EXPLANATION OF WEB CONTENT & ELEMENTS

  • HYPERLINKS — the hyperlinks in this web site are not underlined as in most web sites.  Instead, he text is decorated with orange lettering and is automatically underlined when the cursor hovers over the hyperlink.
  • CASCADING STYLE SHEETS (CSS) — this web site was developed using Cascading Style Sheets.  Cascading Style Sheets is a simple programming mechanism for adding style elements (e.g. fonts, colors, spacing) to web pages.  Since style sheets are no longer a new feature for web developers, today’s older browsers will likely support them.  CSS is implemented in several browsers, including Microsoft Edge, Mozilla, and Opera.  We recommend updating your browser if text, images, or formats of this site are distorted.  This web site has been tested for use without CSS, and although our site looks very different without it, it will sill function the same.
