properly without images enabled, but certain elements
of the site may be confusing without images visible. Where
images are not simply part of the page layout, alternative
text has been added to the images to make their purpose

Navigating the site
The site is a hierarchical
structure. The main page divides the site into a number
Each of these sections has
a menu on the right of the section page which gives you
information on the further pages available in these sections.
Throughout the site, an
effort has been made to give strong visual clues to aid
navigation. Where a link leads to a page which will give
you more detailed information about a particular subject,
an arrow ( ) will be displayed to the left of the link. Alternatively, if a link
leads to a page "above" the current page, then
an upward pointing arrow ( ) will be shown to the left
of the link. On occasions where anchors or bookmarks are
linked to move the user down a page, the link has a
downward pointing arrow ( ) positioned to the left of it. An example of this can be seen at
the top of this page.
In all pages except the
home page, a menu will give clear information about the
current position in the site. At the top of the menu are
links to pages which are above the current page (these
show the upward pointing arrow ). Note that these are not
necessarily the pages that you used to get to the current
page. They are simply a guide to your position within
the site. Below these link(s) is black text in bold. This
gives the title of the current page. Below this text,
a list of links showing any pages which are accessible
from the current page are shown. There may or may not
be any links in this position depending on the page being
accessed. These links will of course have an arrow ( ) to the left of them. Many of these links will also feature in the
content of the page and can be accessed from either link.
