Please upgrade your Internet Explorer, Firefox or Netscape if your current browser setting doesn't meet the minimum requirements as states above.

Internet Explorer, Firefox and Netscape are sometimes different in viewing certain web elements, such as Java scripts, tags and images. We strongly recommend using the latest version of Internet Explorer.

NOTE: Unfortunately we were not able to test our site under Linux, WebTV and AOL environments.

Current Operating System

other is your current operating system.

Screen Resolution  

Your screen width and height is set at 1600 and 900.
The higher you set your monitor resolution, usually, the more screen real estate you'll enjoy, and the better the view. Although the size of your desktop icons may be adjusted to accommodate your new monitor/screen display setting.

To change your monitor display, on the Windows start menu, choose Settings. Select Control Panel, then find and double-click on Display.

Once you have the Display dialog box open, click on the screen settings tab at the top. You should now see a new set of options. Find Screen Area with the horizontal slider bar. Slide the slider bar back and forth to select the monitor setting you prefer, then click on okay. Then, give the computer time to reset your desktop.

Plug-In Requirements  

This site does make use of Macromedia Flash components. In future we will move progressively toward the new technology features of the Internet. Download the plug-ins from Macromedia's Website.

For optimal internet viewing, and reading of some published documents, we recommend  that you have the following plug-ins installed: (Click links below to download).

JavaScript Enabled  

Congratulations, your browser has passed the JavaScript test!!!
This site uses JavaScript. To enjoy the many benefits of JavaScript while you surf, be sure that your browser's JavaScript plug-in is enabled, if applicable, or upgrade now.

You may want to check your settings first:

For Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options > Security > Internet > Custom Level > Scripting > Active Scripting.

For Netscape, go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced and check Enable Javascript


Our font properties are controlled with .css files (Cascading style sheets) In most cases your browsers default setting should be fine, but if the fonts appears too big, just set it one size smaller and check to see whether it looks better. This will make the pages appear closer to the way we have created it. This problem may also be solved by using a lower resolution.

For Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options > Security > Internet > Custom Level > Scripting > check Enable. Stylesheets are automatically implemented in Internet Explorer unless you have implemented your own in which case you will know how to turn it off.

For Netscape, go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced" and check Enable Enable Stylesheets
