Besides our expanding navigation bar, The Vaccine
Page provides several ways of searching its pages. On the front page, there is a
Quick Search box in which you can enter a keyword and have all references to it called up
for you very rapidly. Or you can click on Enhanced
Search and go to our Search Page, where you can search by keyword, by concept, or in
advanced search mode. Documentation for Excite for Web Servers is available from that
If you would like us to consider a URL for addition to our
pages, just go to our Submit URL page and
fill out the brief form. The only required fields are the URL itself and your brief
description of the site.
Hypertext links used anywhere in these pages are checked
regularly for timeliness and accuracy. In addition, recommended links are annotated: if
they call up a page that has been so designed that it is unreadable without loading
graphics, we warn readers of that fact.
Our assumption is that most of the time, most of our readers are seeking information;
they need it as quickly as they can get it. Downloading text
from the source to your computer is noticeably faster if graphics are not loaded.
Here is how that is easily accomplished with the two most popular Web browsers:
- Using the Netscape
browser, click on Options. If Auto-Load Images
has a checkmark before it, click there to remove that mark. If you are using versions of
Netscape earlier than 3.0, click on Save Options. With newer versions,
when you close your browser, options will save automatically and future browsing sessions
will not autoload images.
To load images once a text
page is on your screen, click on Images in the toolbar, or click on View
and then on Load Images.
- Using Microsoft
Internet Explorer, click on View
and then on Options. If Show Pictures is selected,
unselect it by clicking on the X in that box. Then click on OK
at the bottom of the page. Future sessions will not autoload images.
To load images once a page is on your screen, reverse this process.
Once Show Pictures is selected, click on Refresh in the
toolbar to reload the page, this time including the images. (Then be sure to unselect Show
Pictures once again before closing Explorer, or your next session of browsing
will be a good deal slower.)
Employing these tips will make your use of The
Vaccine Page much more efficient and enjoyable.
