Each of the pages has a text navigation section down the left hand side of the screen. There are no graphical navigation buttons within the no frames environment as they are unnecessary devices which can in many cases be more of a hindrance than a help. The text links include a description box informing the user where the link will go. This can be viewed by placing the pointer over the line of text.
