All files (html, images and download files)
are maintained on the server in a structured
folder system so that changes can easily be made by quick
identification and location of the relevant files. This folder
system may be changed from time to time as the site develops.
The menu system is a always available system
with three layers. The main menu layer is always visible
and is consistent (including: search, Guest book, etc.). The secondary,
subject layer becomes visible when the menu item selected
has a content volume greater than would fit onto a single page.
There is a third layer but this is specifically
reserved for the Archive.
If pictures are included in the body text
they are sized for that context. In the Picture gallery all 'thumbnails'
are 100 pixels wide retaining the aspect ratio.
The actual pictures are displayed at 600
pixels wide for colour making them a reasonable size in most browsers,
supporting A4 printing and giving a reasonable download time for
the average modem user. Black and white images are re-sized to 800
pixels wide as user will be more likely to want to view detail and
download times are reasonable as they are black and white images.
All images are in *.GIF where possible (animated in some cases)
or are otherwise in *.JPEG. All photographs are in *.JPEG format.
