(Skip Search Instructions and Tips)
A `Search' field exclusive to the AIEL website will be given
after the examples. Enter search terms of one or more words,
or of phrases. If using a phrase, place it within double quotes. If
only individual terms are used, leave them unquoted. Searches
are not case sensitive, so capital letters will be treated as lower
case. Boolean operators and wildcard characters may also be
employed as can normally be used for any regular Internet
search. These include: and or * (asterisk) - (minus)
+ (plus) ? (question mark) ~ (tilde).
Be aware that complete words must be entered. Incomplete
words such as `ellip' instead of `ellipsoidal' will return the
result message of: "...did not match any documents"
(except for this page, of course).
Successful searches will result in the presentation of links
for only the AIEL webpages containing the term(s) you entered.
Once you go to any AIEL page, use your browser's Intra-Page
Search function, to further narrow the field so as to locate what
you desire. This is explained in detail and with examples after the
Search Box below.
For more information regarding Search methods, read
Search Basics, and see here for additional Search Capabilities.
Upon arriving on a given link's page, use your browser's built-
in "Search" function to quickly jump to where you want within that
page. This is a recommended method because it eliminates the
always dreaded `scroll & scan' procedure needed to locate
the text you desire that is somewhere in the current document.
Depending on the browser, its own Search function is
typically invoked by pressing one of the following.
(Be Cautious: Keys other than the one(s) used by your
browser to search, will produce non-search results.)
- Control+F (Find)
- Control+Q (Query)
- Control+W (Where?)
- F7 (Alternate Key with Some Browsers)
- `/' (Used by Some Text Browsers)
A box or field appears and you may enter the word or
terms for which you wish to search. If none of these key
commands work, consult your browser's "Help" guide.
Our in-depth website extends to over 120 html documents.
Each of the large number of subjects is catergorised in its
own section or subsection. To gain a perspective of this,
overviews are given in a variety of forms to assist you:
- A Site-Wide Links Index lists all the first and second
level pages. It is alphabetised and clickable.
- Graphic maps are available for persons wishing to
visualise the website's structure. The 1012-pixel
Large Graphic Map is for bigger monitors, while
the Small Graphic Map at 640 pixels is suitable
for those using mobile devices.
- We provide a Text Map for those employing
handicap-translation software or for those
using a text browser.
Realise that for each of the preceding, only primary and
secondary levels are shown. This is done to ease the crowding
of the Links List and Site Maps. Levels not shown but encountered
later, will always correspond by subject to the one directly above.
