General Help Topics
The SGN website is designed to work with most common browsers. No additional software is required. The SGN webpages use the XHTML 1.0 and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) standards from the W3 consortium. Certain documents can be downloaded in the PDF format.
We test the pages in Firefox 2.0, Safari 2.0 and Microsoft Explorer 7. Please note that Netscape 4.x browsers are explicitly not supported due to a lack of style sheet support. We recommend the latest version of Firefox, which is available free of charge for all common platforms from the Mozilla project (http://www.mozilla.org). Please let us know if you experience problems with other browsers.
