Navigation aids

 

All pages display breadcrumbs at the top of the page immediately below the Main Menu .To aid in quick navigation, please visit the Sitemap – Quick navigation page.
The General structure of this website is quite simple. Three levels are provided, “The Main Menu, Categories and Articles”.

The Articles are where the detailed content of your enquiry will be found.
There are also four colours that theme each of our Main Menu Areas. These colours will be in the Category Banner or displayed as a thick line at the top of the article list and then on the article page, the actual article heading will be in the appropriate colour.
Services pages will have a green bias, Product pages will have a blue bias, Portfolio will have a red bias and all other website or company info will be orange.
In the event of a non-coloured screen being used for viewing, the above mentioned colours will appear in a grey scale.

 

 

Links

 

Part of this website's dedication to standards compliancy is that in addition to semantically marking up pages, many links have "Title" attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article).
In as much as is possible, links are written to make sense out of context.

Links will highlight and become underlined when the mouse cursor is placed over them. When a link has been visited it will change colour to indicate that you have clicked/visited that link.

 

 
Images

 

All content images used in this site include descriptions, which are displayed when the mouse rolls over the image when it is viewed fullsize. All Banner images also display a description when the mouse cursor is placed or rolled over them.
