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.
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:
- go to the View menu in your browser; then
- 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.
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].
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.
- 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.
