The PDF file format is a common internet file format. It’s used because it faithfully preserves the look and feel of the original document complete with fonts, colours, images, and layout. We use PDFs for data sheets and other documents on this site. To open a PDF file you will need to download Acrobat Reader and install it on your computer. It is free of charge from the Adobe website.
All pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict and use structured semantic markup.
We aim to make the site compatible with the most common browsers and use CSS2 to achieve this. However, if you use an older browser it may not support these coding methods. You will still be able to browse this site, but the layout may be affected. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
