THANK YOU for visiting this web version of the "WALKING TRACK HANDBOOK".
After reading the explanatory material below click here to return to the handbook pages.
These web pages serve as an alternative, internet, source of same information that appears in the printed/published "Walking Track Handbook" (refer to pages 1-3 for introductory information on the concept and scope of this handbook).
1. A representative page of this website - emulating as closely as practicable the layout and size of a typical page of the physical handbook - is shown below. Usually it comprises a block of text on the left hand and an image or another block of text on the right hand, however, there are some variations on this pattern. Below these is a horizontal bar area comprising maxim words centrally placed, and a cluster of four small items against the right margin. These items, left to right, are a hotlink to the first of three pages of the Table of Contents, a hotlink left-pointing arrow which takes you to the previous page, a passive page number showing the current page, and a hotlink right-pointing arrow which takes you to the next page. Directly below this cluster is a hotlink to another web page which displays (usually) three stacked handbook pages, for use as described in paragraph 3 below.
2. The web pages as seen on your screen have been optimised for the Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) browser in a Windows environment. Some variation in layout may be seen when using other browsers and other environments. These variations have been minimised as resources have allowed.
3. Besides viewing single handbook pages on the screen, it is anticipated that print-out of multiple web pages will be required. This can be done in two modes: either a single handbook page on one A4 printed page, or handbook page triplets on one A4 page. The bottom right hand hotlink states which web pages are grouped with the currently displayed page. Click on it to bring up the screen with the triplet, or in some case a pair, of pages or in other cases just one handbook page, then print this screen. Navigation links on this multi-page meant-for-printout display have been removed, or made in-active, to avoid getting lost should links be pursued from here. To exit from the triplet page display, click on the menu bar "Back" icon. Note that IE6 printout does not support printing of background colours. Other browsers do (e.g. Netscape, Firefox-Mozilla). For an uncluttered printout, key File > Print Preview > Page Setup, then clear headers, footers etc (but remember to restore these settings for your regular web page printouts).
