This site should work fine with any modern browser. It should be readable without Javascript, though the contact forms will not work. Older browsers, such as Internet Explorer, may encounter issues with the site.


Some older posts may contain images lacking useful alt-text. In most cases, those images are decorative, so no information is lost. But because of the large number of legacy posts, it has not been possible to review each post and image. Any content posted recently should have useful alt-text for any non-decorative image. Similarly, some PDFs or other documents linked to on this site may have accessibility issues; it has not been possible to check all the files. Please contact us if you encounter inaccessible content or files.
