Display Issues : The site looks best at
1024x768 in IE5.0 or NS4.7 and soon to be updated for 21st Century browsers –
Composer, MS-Word and txt to compose the bulk of the content – which is
standardized at Verdana 8pt – though it varies at times; images were formatted
in Photoshop6.0 and Paint Shop Pro – early scans were at whatever dpi and
resolution I could get, but later scans are 300dpi jpegs for important images
that may be downloaded for printing, and 150dpi jpegs for other less important
images and documents. I am not a very sophisticated programmer, as is evident.
