Articles

What you see and how you interact with any web site depends on many things. A web page is built on your computer, using data sent from our server that is interpreted by your browser software. Due to the wide variety of computing devices, operating systems and browsers available, it is impossible for us to ensure that this site is displayed correctly in every case.  Our web site uses technology that should work correctly on most recent browsers, on most common computing platforms. The following points should be considered if you experience problems.

Web page zooming

Most modern browsers have a facility for adjusting the 'zoom' level on the entire web page. This can make the entire web page larger or smaller. In many cases, Ctrl + and Ctrl -, or holding the Ctrl key down and moving the mouse scroll wheel, will change the zoom level. Check your browser's help system for details.

Font size

We have provided two buttons at the top of each page that override the standard size of text on the site. If your browser does not provide a zoom facility, this can be used to make the text easier to read. Changing the font size of the text can sometimes lead to unwanted changes to the way a page is laid out due to the need to make the text flow round other page elements, like images.

Browser versions

Incompatibilities between different browsers, and different versions of the same browser, can cause problems. The server software we use should be compatible with recent versions of the most common browsers, however there still might be small differences between how a page is rendered by different browsers. The following is a list of suggested browsers to try if your usual one causes problems. It is not possible for us to guarantee that any particular browser will work correctly with our web site pages, nor should the list be taken as any form of recommendation.

  • Internet Explorer 7 (8 and newer preferred)
  • Firefox 3.6
  • Firefox 9 (13 and newer preferred)
  • Safari 5 (5.1 and newer preferred)
  • Chrome 17 (XY and newer preferred)
  • Opera 11.6

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer when you visit a web page, and are returned when you visit another web page from the same server. See our Cookie Policy page for more information. If your browser is set to reject cookies, some or all of this site may not work correctly, or at all.

Accessibility software

Software that runs on your computer and modifies your browser's output may have an adverse effect on the presentation of web pages. Software that falls into this category includes programs or browser add-ons that change the colours or contrast of web pages, screen readers, etc. If you use these tools, we cannot guarantee full compatibility although we attempt to design web pages that do not cause unnessary problems when used with such software.
