Layout and Design

This website is powered by software from Sitecore. As much as possible, layout of all pages is controlled by cascading style sheets. However, some table-based layout is necessary because of the portal software.


Relative font sizes are used throughout this site.

  • Internet Explorer users may select View > Text Size to increase or decrease font size on screen
  • Text on all pages is still readable even if your browser does not support stylesheets


  • As much as possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Some browsers can extract a list of links on a page, allowing the user to browse the list separately from the page.
  • No links open a new window without warning


Numerous documents are made available on this site in Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel formats.
