How to use this site

  • This site is best viewed with the Firefox browser.

    • Most browsers should work correctly, but IE has some minor problems rendering pages correctly.  Firefox and Google Chrome are good bets as they are cross-platform, very accurate in rendering pages and generally regarded as more secure than IE.

  • To Print a page, E-mail a page, or generate a .PDF file from a page

    • Click the appropriate icon along the bottom of the page.  The Printer icon will generate a printer-friendly page, the Letter icon will allow you to email a copy of the page along with comment to one or more people, and the PDF icon will generate a downloadable .pdf file.

    • You do not need to be logged in to use the Contact Us page.

  • Searching

    • Searching now works on the roots of words For example, searching for any of the words "help", "helps" or "helped" will return all articles containing any or all three words.  This is accomplished using the Porter-Stemmer algorithm.

    • Searches are not case-sensitive. 

    • You may need to search for certain things in more than one way, i.e. 2nd and second, or 9th and ninth, etc.

    • The Advanced Search function will allow you to search for phrases, multiple words, etc.

    • Well, that depends.  If you only want to view the information on the site, you do not need to create a Username.  However, if you would like to comment on any page, contact us,or participate in any more advanced features of this site as they become available, you will need to create a Username and Password.

      To create a Username, click the link and answer the questions.  You will receive two emails.  The first tells you your request has been logged by the system and is awaiting approval.  Once your account is enabled, you receive the second e-mail giving you a link to log on for the first time and set your password.
