Page Design: This
site was created on a 486/50MHz IBM Thinkpad with
next-to-no hard drive space, even less RAM,
shockingly low color capability, and a 10.5"
LCD panel with 640 X 480 maximum screen
resolution. Why should you
care? Because it means that
I designed this site to accommodate the lowest
settings (i.e. me!) -- all pages are either
hardcoded with a layout width of 600 pixels or
will shrink to fit any width. If you are using a
much larger screen resolution (especially
anything over 800 X 600), you may see a fair
amount of "white space" to the left and
right of the information on many of the pages.
main section pages contain display the same set
of navigation buttons on the left side. However
some pages within the sections contain so much
text that the buttons become cumbersome -- this
is especially true in the Gilroy Wing (i.e.
character pages), Pan Room (i.e. episode guides),
and Duty Roster (i.e. cast biographies) where
you'll find that the button bar is only displayed
on the main pages and not on the individual
pages. Where there are no buttons, the page will
either load in a new browser window or a
included at the bottom of the page to allow you
to visit other pages without clicking your
browser's BACK button.
I've tested the functionality of all pages using MSIE
3.6, though you shouldn't
experience problems using
other browsers as well (no guarantees, though).
It looks best in MSIE, however, because that's
what I use at home (I only have the hard drive
space for one of the primary browsers and
Netscape takes too much memory to run). The font
sizes may be a bit off in the latest version of
Opera -- I'm not sure why that is. If you do
have trouble with another browser, let me know
and I'll try to address the problem. Please note
that in order for the button rollovers and jump
to menus to function, you must have a
Most of the pages on this web site have been
designed to print out on one sheet of paper.
Pages which contain a great deal of information
(such as the episode guides, timeline, and
sitemap) may be 2 or more pages long. See the Pan
for info about printing the detailed episode
Due to the formatting and layout of this web
site, I can't guarantee that it will be
"accessible" to all surfers (meaning
that visually impaired or otherwise disadvantaged
persons may not be able to navigate or translate
all of the pages properly). I am in the process
of creating a "text only" site that
will be more accessible.
