Browsers
This site should be compatible with most current browsers, including Netscape Navigator 7 and Internet Explorer 6. Some parts of the site, particularly the search programs, may not work properly with earlier versions. Some difficulties may also be encountered with early versions of Netscape 6, which do not always align images correctly, and with Opera 5, which does not load all the images. The site does not use frames or Cascading Style Sheets. It is best seen at a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, though it is also satisfactory at 800 x 600. At lower resolutions than this some horizontal scrolling will be necessary to see all the page.
 

JavaScript

Extensive use is made of JavaScript, for button roll-overs, searches and the slide show. To take advantage of these, ensure that Java Script is enabled in your browser. (In Netscape Navigator go to Edit : Preferences : Advanced, and tick "Enable JavaScript".)

Images

Unless your internet connection is very slow, ensure that your browser is set to display images. (In Netscape Navigator go to Edit : Preferences : Advanced, and ensure that there is a tick against "Automatically load images"; in Internet Explorer go to Tools : Internet Options : Advanced : Multimedia, and ensure that there is a tick against "Show pictures".)
 

Searching

From the Home page and the Archive page you can go to a Search Page which gives access to 3 search programs:
  • A client-side (internal) search program which locates conductors, soloists, composers and works occurring in the concert files.
  • A client-side (internal) search program which lists the performers for a particular concert, and enables you to search for players' names.
  • A server-side (external) script which locates any text in the text files and provides a link to the file where it is found.
The first two programs are recommended for routine searches of the concert files as they provide links to the concert details. They are written in JavaScript and search data arrays within the program. Since the data is loaded into the user's computer the files may be slower to load, but searching is very fast.
The third program searches the whole web-site; it provides links to the files containing the search item but will not take you to the specific text within the files, nor provide links to the concert details.
