We did our best both to make the pages readable and to obtain a consistent look, independent of the platform and browser. There is one reported problem: the font size randomly changes to a too-large font with UNIX/LINUX Netscape 4.x. If this happens to you, try the following: in "Edit-Preferences... Appearance-Fonts", select "Use my default fonts, overriding document-specified fonts", and choose a font size which renders legibly on your screen in the panel above.
