Preface for HTML Users

This is a version of the article for use in a web browser. As such, this article is a completely self-contained, interactive product, just as if you were reading a website. Each web page has a simple Table of Contents at the top of the page. The Table of Contents links at the top of each page points to all of the general document-wide indexes. The article is meant to be read in any order, with no specific flow, aside from the order of the items listed in the Table of Contents. With a web browser, you have complete control to move 'back' through your reading pathway. This is not the same as an EPUB or PDF document, which have a specific flow from page to page. Both the indexes and Table of Contents are made up of links that will send you to the appropriate text or illustration. The font and layout were designed to work with computer screens, phones, and tablets. However, the viewer may have trouble with the font size, depending on the device used. It is recommended that computer users, in particular use the CRTL+ key combination to make the screen view larger, if the font appears to be too small.

The illustrations seen in-line are smaller thumbnails of the full illustrations. Clicking on a thumbnail activates a pop-up window with the full-quality illustration. Use of this feature requires that you configure your browser to 'allow pop-up windows'. The method of enabling this feature differs with each browser type.
