Important Notes about the Monitor Settings and Internet Browser Used for Viewing

Selecting the proper browser and monitor settings are critical in order to get the most of the Treasures of the Internet (TOTI) website and related subsites (e.g., AIDS Primer, Ecosystems, Health Resources, Odyssey, etc.).

Monitor Settings
If you do not have a 17-inch monitor or larger, please make sure, if possible, to set your "monitor setting" at "Color Depths" of "thousands" and "Resolution" of "800x600" so that the entire page will appear on your screen. This will minimize "sideways scrolling". If you have difficulties with your eyesight, a monitor "Resolution" of "640x400" would enlarge the letter sizes. [Unfortunately, doing the latter could also mess up the layout and the aesthetic appearance of a page.] Be sure you have a 17-inch monitor or larger, if you opt for the latter monitor resolution.

Internet Browser
At present, please use Netscape 4.5 (or higher); the browser used in layout editing of this website. [There are serious incompatibilities with Netscape 6, if the latter is installed in older computer systems.] If you use Internet Explorer (IE) exclusively, please use IE version 5.0 or higher.

There are incompatibilities with Internet Explorer (click here for details) when viewing the vast library of figures, graphs, photographs, etc., and the various page layouts -- slide shows, screen savers, multi-layered presentations, etc., used to present them. The latter have key roles in the orderly presentation of the archived databases included in the Treasures of the Internet (TOTI) website and related subsites (e.g., AIDS Primer, Ecosystems, Health Resources, Odyssey, etc.).

Picture-rich pages
For the slide shows, screen savers, multi-layered presentations, etc.; the background chosen was "black" -- to focus your attention to the figure or picture presented. For some reason, Internet Explorer does not recognize and does not execute the universal command for the "color" black, i.e., "#000000", as instructed in the page "html commands", especially when this background instruction was combined with "server side includes (SSI)" page instructions for "dynamic" slide shows, screen savers, multi-layered presentations, etc. Note that Internet Explorer recognizes and executes the universal command for the "color" black, i.e., "#000000", when used in "static" pages.

The result would be a "white" (instead of a "black") general background -- causing some lighter colored text to be unreadable; thus, failure to achieve the desired impact of a "black background" discussed above. Efforts are underway to resolve this incompatibility, but this will involve modifying thousands of pages.

For now, if you observe this "white" background in some of the slide shows, screen savers, multi-layered presentations, etc., please use Netscape 4.5 or higher. You may still observe this problem in some pages of Odyssey, Ecosystems, Likas-Philippines, etc.

Resolving the Incompatibilities
Efforts are underway to resolve the incompatibilities between older versions (below v6) of Netscape on the one hand; and Internet Explorer v5 & Netscape 6, or higher, on the other side. However, this will take time because TOTI and the related websites have grown enormously (to tens of thousands of pages) during the past few years.

The greater challenge in resolving the incompatibilities is taking into consideration the variety of browsers, monitor settings, font size & type defaults, computer systems, etc., used by internet visitors. Also, compromises have to be made to accomodate internet visitors who prefer the earlier but "less bulky" versions of the Netscape or Internet Explorer and those who have embraced the latest versions of the available browsers.

The overall impact of all these compromises is that the appearance of the Treasures of the Internet website and the related subsites (e.g., AIDS Primer, Ecosystems, Odyssey, Health Resources, etc.) would not be as aesthetically as pleasing had we had complete control of all the variables.

All these imperfections should not detract you from the exploring the treasures of the internet that we hope to direct you to in the pages of the Treasures of the Internet website and the related subsites.
