For Internet Explorer (versions 5 and 6 only) you may first need to disable style sheets, to do so follow these directions:

  1. From the Menu Bar select ‘Tools / Internet Options’
  2. Select the ‘General’ tab and click the box entitled ‘Accessibility’
  3. Ensure that the three buttons under ‘Formatting’ are checked
  4. Click OK in ‘Accessibility’ dialog box
  5. Click OK in ‘Internet Options’ dialog box
  6. Click ‘Refresh’.

* If you’re not sure which browser or version you’re using, simply select ‘Help / About…’ from the main menu. The specific menu option may read ‘Help / About Internet Explorer’, ‘Help / About Opera’ etc.
