Getting around this site

Scrolling assistant

The scrolling assistant can help you to view long pages. When turned on, two large UP and DOWN buttons are placed at the top left of the website. Clicking these buttons moves the page up or down without the need for scrolling.

Access keys

You can use this site with the following access keys instead of a mouse.

To use these shortcut keys hold down the ALT key (PC) or CONTROL key (Apple Macintosh) then one of the keys in the table below. In some browsers you will have to press ENTER to confirm your choice. In Firefox hold down SHIFT and ALT. In the Opera 7 browser press SHIFT-ESC, release those keys, then press your chosen access key.
