Navigating the Articles

To view a contribution, click on its title.

To search for an author name or title keyword, use the "FIND" button present in the toolbar in Netscape, or equivalent feature in other browsers.

Using the Navigation Buttons.

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 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;
 Category 1
 Category 2
 Author list
 Keyword list
 Title list by date
 Search text
 Molecule List
 Molecule Search

 What's New

ECHET98 documents may contain the following two icons;
Clicking on this icon allows you to perform a keyword search on the conference.
home page Clicking 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 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 Netscape.
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.
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.
