HELLO

WHAT FOLLOWS IS A WORD OF GUIDANCE, WHICH IF HEEDED, WILL MAKE YOUR VISIT TO MY WEBSITE AND TO EVERY WEBSITE ON THE INTERNET A MUCH MORE PLEASURABLE AFFAIR.

THROUGHOUT, I AM REFERRING TO THE <INTERNET EXPLORER> AND TO THE MICROSOFT <EDGE> BROWSERS BUT TO NO OTHER BROWSERS. THOSE WHO USE A BROWSER OTHER THAN THE INTERNET EXPLORER/MICROSOFT EDGE ARE ONE THEIR OWN FOR I HAVE NOT CATERED FOR THEM IN MY AUTHORING.

THE INTERNET EXPLORER [IE/EDGE] IS/ARE UNIVERSAL AND BELIEVED TO BE THE MOST USED BROWSER ON THE PLANET - THAT IS WHY I HAVE HONED MY SITE TO THEIR STATE OF  EXCELLENCE!

HISTORICALLY, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY IE's, AND STILL EXTANT [AND MUCH USED BY MILLIONS] ARE IE7, 8, 9 AND NOW, WITH WINDOWS 8, IE10 AND 11. EACH IE IS DIFFERENT, AND A WEB AUTHOR CAN WRITE A PAGE WHICH IS FINE WHEN TESTED IN SAY IE8, BUT FAILS TO SHOW WHAT WAS INTENDED ON SAY, IE9. OF COURSE WITH WINDOWS 10, THE MICROSOFT 'EDGE' BROWSER COMES INTO ITS OWN!

FORTUNATELY FOR ALL OF US, MICROSOFT IS A JUMP AHEAD. IN ITS LATEST SYSTEMS [WHICH I USE WITH GREAT SUCCESS] ON WINDOWS 8/IE 11, WHICH FOLLOWS ON FROM WINDOWS 7/IE9-10, IN THAT IT RECOGNISES THAT SOME WEBSITES WERE WRITTEN BEFORE THESE PROGRAMMES WERE INTRODUCED AND COULD BE CONSIDERED OLD FASHION AND OUT OF DATE.  USING WINDOWS 8/IE11 IS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE, BUT IT CAN LEAD TO BROWSING "OLD" WEBSITES WITH LOTS OF LITTLE RED X's, MISPLACED/DISPLACED GRAPHICS, NO SOUND, NO THUMBNAILS, NO MUSIC etc.

MY GUIDANCE RESOLVES ALL THAT AND BRINGS YOUR ATTENTION TO THE IE BROWSER ON YOUR SCREEN, i.e. THE TOP ADDRESS BAR AND NOT THE GOOGLE [OR OTHER SEARCH ENGINE WINDOWS] BAR. NOTE THAT ON THAT BAR IS A SYMBOL [CLICK IT TO TRY IT] ILLUMINATED EITHER WHITE OR BLUE IN COLOUR. IT HAS A TEXT READ-OUT CALLED "COMPATIBILITY".

IF YOU ENTER ANY OF MY PAGES WITH THE COLOUR OF THE COMPATIBILITY BUTTON SHOWING WHITE, YOU WILL SEE ALL MY MODERN PAGES, i.e. THOSE WRITTEN RECENTLY. HOWEVER, IF YOU SEE ANYTHING UNTOWARD, LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE NO THUMBNAILS, YET, IF YOU WERE TO CLICK ON WHERE THEY SHOULD BE, YOU WILL SEE THE CORRESPONDING 'LARGER' PICTURE, YOU WILL NEED TO CLICK ON THE COMPATIBILITY BUTTON TO TURN IT TO THE COLOUR BLUE, AT WHICH POINT ALL THE DETAIL OF THE OLDER PAGE [WRITTEN FOR AN EARLIER IE] WILL BE REVEALED, WHICH ADDRESSES RIGHT BACK TO YEARS-OLD WRITTEN WEBPAGES. THUS, WHATEVER PAGE YOU VISIT ON THE SITE, YOU WILL BE REWARDED WITH A FULL AND COMPREHENSIVE VISIT NO MATTER WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN/SCRIPTED.

I HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT.
