It can be quite easy to get "lost" when browsing a large set of
documents. For this reason, we have tried to implement various
"signposts" to help you get to where you want.
You are strongly advised to use a "frames" compliant World-Wide
Web client such as Netscape Navigator Version 2.0. This will produce a
"split" window on the screen. The left hand side window should remain permanently present
whilst you browse the conference, and can be used to orient yourself within
The "Back" and "Forward" buttons normally used in Web browsers may function
somewhat confusingly if you are in a multi-frame document. Instead, we advise the
following procedure; To go back or forward a "frame", press the mouse button anywhere in the frame window
(but not on a link itself). A "pull-down" menu appears from which you can select
back or forward.
If you are using a client which does not support frames,
the left hand frame will be absent. It contains the following items;
Most of the ECHET96 documents contain the following two icons;
Clicking on this icon allows you to
perform a keyword search on the conference.
on this icon will return you to the conference "home" page.
In order to help format the pages more clearly, we make use of "Tables"
extensively throughout ECHET96. Older generations of browsers may not support
tables, although the contents should always be visible on the screen. If
you are having difficulty, you are strongly advised to acquire a tables compliant
browser such as Netscape.
It might help you to make a collection of ECHET96 "bookmarks"
using your Web client.
Within an active frame, the Add Bookmark option does not add the URL
of the frame to your list, but rather the URL of the document that generated
the frames. On a PC only, you can add a bookmark for an individual frame by
pressing the rhs mouse button either while pointing to the hyperlink of this
frame or within a picture or a hyperlink within this frame. From the
menu that appears, select add bookmark.
Don't forget the "Find" feature present in most clients, which enables
you to locate a given keyword easily within any open document.
Within frames the built-in FIND function of Netscape ( CTRL - F) can be
used e.g. to search for an author or any other string within that frame
Remember that if any image has a coloured border, it will be hyperlinked to
some other source of information.
Each article has indicated up to five other articles, which the application
of chemical similarity algorithms has indicated might be relevant. For further information
