Throughout the documentation, I will make use of several
conventions. These are;
- Quotes. After I have quoted text from another source,
I will give a link to that source. If the source is a book, the
link will point to the relevant section in the bibliography. If
the source is an online resource, the source will be marked 'online'
and the link will point to an exact spot in my mirror of that
- Next Page. A report handed in on paper may be completely
digested by reading each page sequentially from cover to cover.
This is not, however, the case with a report written in hypertext.
How does the evaluator know when they have read all the material?
In order to do this, the evaluator would have to exhaustively
search every single hyperlink.
To take this load of the evaluator, I have included a menu bar
at the top and bottom of each page, with a 'next page' link. By
consistently following this link, the evaluator can be sure they
have read all the material I have presented. The only exceptions
to this are resources external to my web, glossary entries, diagrams,
and the quoted text references.
- Browser. The principle browser I used throughout the
project was Netscape Navigator 3 Gold. I have also viewed the
report and finished web site with Microsoft Internet Explorer,
and have found it to be compatible.
