BROWSERS

Browser Specifications:
Our web-sites are designed on Internet Explorer 4.0 and are tested on Internet Explorer 3.0+ and Netscape 3.0+. Although supported, we recommend not using Internet Explorer 3.0 due to its lack of JavaScript features. By using Internet Explorer 3.0, you will miss enhancements that were built to make your Internet browsing experience easy, understandable, and fun.

If you are using a browser below Internet Explorer 4.0 or Netscape 3.0, we highly recommend you to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to learn how to obtain a newer browser or click on the link below to find out how you can download and install the latest version of the Internet Explorer.

Maximizing Your Viewing Area:
The larger the viewing area is set on your browser, the more information you can see at one time. If your viewing area is too small, you might miss links or the site might confuse you. To maximize your browser window, please do the following:

Maximize Your Window In the Windows 95+ and Windows NT environments, you will find three buttons in the upper-right hand corner of most windows. If your browser is maximized, the center of the three buttons appear as two boxes. If it is not maximized, you will see a single box instead (please see the illustration below). If your browser is not maximized, please click the center of the three buttons (the single box). If done correctly, the browser window should encompass most of the screen and the center of the three buttons will change to two boxes.
