Screen Resolution
Display Settings

We highly recommend display settings of at least 1024 x 768 and 32 bit color quality. If your setting is 800 x 600, you may notice graphics and text extending off the edge of your monitor, or potentially wrapping around the screen and distorting the layout of the web pages.

If your color depth is 256 colors, you may notice areas in the web page where your display was forced to round a "true color" to one of the 256 "palette colors". Sometimes this "rounding" results in a completely different color.

In older browsers, if the font appears too big, just set it one size smaller and check to see whether it looks better. This will make the pages appear closer to the way we have created them to look. Most modern browsers "zoom" into the web page instead of allowing users to increase font size. Try your browser's "zoom" feature if you would like to view the website with larger text.
