Explanation of Web Content & Elements
  1. Hyperlinks - The hyperlinks in this Web site are not underlined as in most Web sites.  Instead, the text is decorated with bold lettering and is automatically underlined when the cursor hovers over the hyperlink.

  2. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) - This Web site was developed using Cascading Style Sheets.  Cascading Style Sheets is a simple mechanism for adding style (e.g. fonts, colors, spacing) to Web documents.  Since style sheets are a relatively new feature for web developers, older browsers may not support them, and it may take a while for new browsers to support them in a standard way.  CSS is implemented in several browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla, Konqueror and Opera.  We recommend updating your browser if the text, images, or format of this Web site are distorted.  This Web site has been tested for use without CSS, and although our site looks very different without it, it will still function the same.
