Reading the site

In short: I'm British and adhere to British spellings; and you can modify the size of the text using your browser.

Text size

I've tried to set the text at a readable size, but if you are having trouble reading the text, you can change the text size on your computer.

In general, you can find a way to change the text size by this method:

  1. go to the View menu in your browser; then
  2. find an option or sub-menu called Text Size, Zoom or Zoom Text

You will be able to resize the text from there.

The BBC has created a superb page with specific instructions on how to change text size.

Browser keyboard short-cuts

If you like, you can use your keyboard to cycle through and select links.

  1. Safari

    Go to Preferences; under the "Advanced" tab, select Highlight links as you press the Tab key. You can then use Tab or Option-Tab to cycle through links and form fields [This was found from an answer in a forum; I had no joy finding any information on the Safari site. Let me know if this information is incorrect].

  2. Opera

    Opera has extensive documentation for keyboard use. But most importantly, you can use Q and A to cycle through links, and Tab to cycle through form fields.

  3. Firefox and Internet Explorer

    Use Tab to cycle through links and form fields.

Language and style

I write in an informal style from my viewpoint on most of the pages, except for those where I have [or someone else has] written in the third person. I use British English spellings on this site, closely related to the Oxford English Dictionary.

I skim-read for typographical errors, but will always correct them if notified nicely. If I quote someone else, I leave their mistakes in - and will not correct them unless asked by the author, or the mistake is so bad as to render the text incomprehensible.

Many thanks to all those who have checked the site for ship-shapeliness, especially my fab mailing list.
