This page gives some information that may be of help in problems when browsing the pages in the new format.


Problems with applets and CDFs

Please refer to the page on this topic.


Page resizing

The dimensions used in presenting each page depend on the widths of the screen and of the browser window. A change in the latter will only change the dimensions if the page is reloaded.


Reformatting pages

Except for top pages (like this one, having a heading with red background), each page has a button at the upper right that changes the size of its body and adjusts the side bar at the left.



Any page having translations in other languages has links to them that appear as national flags above the side bar at the left. The flag corresponds to the language in the target page.


Flags are also used in an index page in a certain language when referring to a page for which there is presently no translation in that language. The flags link to the existing versions of the page in other languages.


Classification of pages in categories
