Navigational Aids Links
We have tried to make all link names meaningful and, to help you navigate, many links have tooltips which briefly describe what you will find if you follow the link. We also indicate if a link opens in a new window with a tooltip and if the destination is to another website.
Change the settings on your browser
Most browsers allow you to tailor your browsing experience to your needs. Tools and features built in to the browser will help you change colours, change the type and size of fonts and even block content.
If you have a mouse with a wheel you can alter the size of the text size by holding down ctrl (PC) or command (Mac) on your keyboard while scrolling the mouse wheel up and down. Alternatively, you can use the contextual menus:

Accessing PDF Documents
The PDF file format is a common internet file format. It’s used because it faithfully preserves the look and feel of the original document complete with fonts, colours, images, and layout. We use PDFs for data sheets and other documents on this site. To open a PDF file you will need to download Acrobat Reader and install it on your computer. It is free of charge from the Adobe website.
