The site's web developers, Surface Impression, have used web design code that meets international web standards. In particular, style sheets have been used to handle all presentation of content. These can be "over-ridden" by site visitors so they can change the appearance of web pages to suit their own needs or purposes.
You can find free tools to help you create your own stylesheet on the web. By doing this you can specify the text colour, font type and size, background colours etc. to suit you. Once you have created your own stylesheet you can apply it to our website.
Click on the 'Tools' menu, then on 'Internet Options'. This brings up a dialog box. Select 'Accessibility' to bring up another dialog box. From here you can attach your stylesheet by ticking the 'Format documents using my style sheet' checkbox. Click on the 'Browse' button and select the stylesheet you want to use.
Go to 'File', 'Preferences' and select 'Page Style' from the list on the left hand side. From the drop down menu next to 'Default Mode', select 'User Mode' from the list. Click on the 'Choose' button under 'My Stylesheet' to find your stylesheet and attach it.
