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.
strongly advised to use a "frames" compliant World-Wide Web client
such as Netscape Navigator Version 3 or 4. 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 conference.
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;
documents may contain the following two icons;
Clicking on this icon allows you to perform a keyword search on
Clicking on this icon will return you to the conference "home"
In order to

extensively throughout ECHET98. 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
It might help
you to make a collection of ECHET98 "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.
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
if any image has a coloured border, it will be hyperlinked to some
other source of information.
