Pages not showing correctly?

Your browser might be out-of-date. It is a vexing and never ending task to get all browsers to display content in a similar fashion: the worst offender over the years with respect to not being compliant with the standards of the World Wide Web Consortium has been Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE), but the most current releases (as of 2014, IE [Ver. 8 to 11, depending on the version of Windows] and FireFox [Ver. 28], for example) are much better at uniform implementation. Some issues remain, and new ones arise (e.g., how the "current" IE and FireFox display "objects" in different manners, which, for a while, broke the side navigation menu: neither was "wrong" in terms of web standards, but the differences were catastrophic in terms of the display; also, a fix for a previous IE standards problem caused the scroll bar to disappear in the latest releases: fixing that for the current IE now re-creates the original problem in older releases); essentially, non-current browsers are functionally obsolete.

Just to be safe, make sure you are using the latest version of your favorite browser: download the latest version from the links below. Our web designer (DocSteve) recommends FireFox for the best variety of add-ons; however, it has become somewhat bloated and is now noticably slow in comparison to other browsers. Opera, Safari, and Chrome are faster but lack features (it would seem — I guess it's logical — that more features equal slower speed). All current browsers should work well, considering the caveats above.

You will also need to have downloaded Adobe reader to view the .pdf documents on the site.
