When using this website, you will notice that the page layout consists of several windows (frames) which cascade from top to bottom. This design allows for faster browsing and more condensed screen views, but it can be difficult or confusing to use at first. These instructions should help the user to understand how frames pages work in general and provide some specific tips for the best utilization of this website.
One helpful tool is to use Full Screen View (F11) to provide more screen area, especially on laptops or small monitors.
The top frame is the menu and top banner and is static; the middle frame (this frame) contains general information and links based on the top menu category and is scrollable; the lower frame (which starts with moving band images) displays detailed content stemming from the links on the middle frame and is scrollable and resizeable (see below); and the bottom frame contains the bottom banner and copyright and is static.
If your browser does not support frames, a 'no-frames' version of the home page will display, providing access to all the information available on this website in a standard format. You can access this page at: www.e-prog.net/noframes.htm. (Note: If you are currently within a frame, and just want to try this, close the framed page after opening the no-frame page; otherwise, links will still go to the framed page).
When using frames, the 'back' function on your browser may not allow you to back-up within a particular window. In order to navigate within a specific window, you may need to place your pointer in the desired frame, click the right mouse button and select 'back' or 'back in window'. There are many other options in this context-sensitive menu which may come in handy for other tasks. Different operating systems and browser types may have different ways to accomplish the back function. The same rationale applies for the 'refresh' function... you may need to click in the selected window (ground) before refreshing the screen content.
