Links provide additional and relevant information. Text of differing colour links to pages on third parties web sites. Underscored text links to pages at this web or the mother site. You'll also find links in graphics, pictures and text. Links contain additional information which becomes visible on mouse over.
Scattered throughout the web site are hip images that may link to foreign places of wonder while others are simply there to make the journey down the page pleasing to the eye.
Technical quality of the web site and printing

Pages are made with flexible width. Whether your paper size is A4, letter or legal, you shouldn't have too many problems printing the pages.

Note that most PHP pages utilizes metadata (information about information), including Dublin Core encoding and a range of Next, Previous, Chapter, Section, and other attributes of the link element. Some Dublin Core information will not, though, be useful to anything but some kind of future database software or aggregator. But the link-element additions are immediately practical for anyone who uses a browser like Mozilla, Netscape 6 or later, Opera, iCab, or Lynx, all of which give access to those navigational elements, which let you move from chapter to chapter and section to section. Have fun with them!
Hint for Mozilla and Netscape users: Turn on the Site Navigation Bar in the View menu's Show/Hide submenu. In iCab, the Standard Links toolbar must be active. In Opera, reveal the Link Bar. Lynx shows navigational elements automatically.)
Comments on metadata are adapted from Joe Clark.

These may be viewed in for instance Real Player or Windows Media Player.
