Site Requirements

High Bandwidth:
FCPS UK is viewed best on a 17" or 15" monitor using 1024x768 resolution with True or High colour. The site uses HTML 4 and targets Internet Explorer and Netscape.

Low Bandwidth:
FCPS UK is viewed best on a 17" or 15" monitor using 800x600 resolution with 256 colours.

Other resolutions will distort the intended layout.

Please set your Language script to Times New Roman. Your Screen Fonts should be Small and your browser Text Size set to Medium, or you may use Large screen fonts and the Smallest browser Text Size. If you are using a MAC, or an older browser, please set your variable base font to 14 pts and fixed font to 12 pts.

My apologies for any inconvienence, but these simple adjustments will increase your accessibility and enjoyment.

The website uses the following TrueType fonts: Georgia, Times New Roman, Arial, Verdana, Courier New, Helvetica and 宋体 -- the core fonts installed automatically with Windows 95/98/00/XP/NT. They all possess appropriate MAC/LINUX equivalents and should not present a problem for almost all browsers.

Dynamic HTML (DHTML), JavaScript calls, and Flash pages are used throughout the site. Consequently, web browsers must be able to read HTML 4, Macromedia Flash plug-in. Various pages will also require Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 or higher.

Macromedia Flash Player          

Most frames are intended to be "printer friendly". Please notify me if you have problems.

This site uses cascading style sheet or CSS, whcih means the Windows browsers Internet Explorer 5.0 and Netscape version 4.7 (or higher) will be your preferred guides. Macintosh IE 3.01 is also acceptable. Because newer browsers are now free and easy to obtain, I strongly encourage all visitors of FCPS UK to obtain the latest version of the browser they prefer. For those Firefox users, this web site may displayed in an disordered layout because Firefox browser dosen't give full support to CSS.

CSS makes web pages easier to be managed into one constant style, when you change the style, all pages with that style will be updated, such a benefit helps me a lot in arranging this site.

Any computer using the site recommendations will enter FCPS UK without difficulties. The more powerful a PC, however, the better the site will run. Additionally, the faster a connection (e.g. BT or other broadband service), the more pleasant your experience will be.

FCPS UK assumes many viewers have at least an ISDN connection. Cable modems, DSL, or WI/FI connections will function best. Even though I have attempted to compress all files, a 56 or 28.8kbs connection (modem or something similiar) will be slow. Please be patient. Many pages use graphics with "image" or "layer" rollovers (with some including sounds and/or extended timelines), and there may be delays.

Those of you outside continental West Europe, may also experience traffic delays as well.

FCPS UK was designed and built using Dreamweaver, Flash and Photoshop within a Windows NT/XP environment.
