This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.

How to change your font size display in MSIE version 7 (please refer to your browser help file for information on changing font size in other browsers):

  1. Select 'View' from the top pull down menu options.
  2. Select 'Text Size' from the View menu options.
  3. Select the font size that you prefer from the list of five available options.
  4. Many website visitors with impaired vision need to increase the font size from the default 'Medium' setting to 'Larger' or 'Largest'.
  5. Some visually impaired web users need to take further steps to make websites visible. Internet Explorer and many other browsers enable you to specify your own Cascading Style Sheet that will override the styling of the websites that you view. This will give you full control of the visual appearance of the text in websites. You can find out more about specifying your own CSS file by using the Help function within your web browser software.
