Viewing Tips

  • Adjusting Text Size

    • Using Your Web Browser

      If the text appears too small on this or any other Internet site, your browser may be set to the smallest text size. Most browsers allow you to change the text size on a page. You may also be able to zoom in and out of the page using your browser. Since there are numerous web browsers and browser versions, we cannot provide instructions on how to adjust the browser's text size on this page. Try clicking on your browser's help menu, if available, or click on one of the links below to go to the support pages of widely used browsers.

    • Changing Your Computer's Screen Resolution

      If the text and graphics on your web browser and on all of your computer programs are too small, you may want to change your Screen Resolution. The lower you set the screen resolution, the larger the text and graphics will appear. Conversely, the higher you set the screen resolution, the smaller the text and graphics will appear. Our Web site has been designed to work on screen resolutions of 800 x 600 pixels (the web standard). If your screen resolution is set higher than this, the text may look too small. Since there are numerous monitors and operating systems, we cannot provide instructions on how to adjust your computer's screen resolution on this page. Please review your monitor's or operating system's Help documentation for more information.
