This site was developed so that it looks best when using a medium resolution monitor
(approximately 1200 X 1000). On monitors with smaller resolution the site may appear
large and when using a high resolution monitor the site may be too small, or at
least be difficult to read. On many browsers pressing the Control and + keys
simultaneously will increase the viewing size and pressing the Control and - keys
