|The "Home Page" button takes you to the web page with thumbnails showing allof the trip reports. You can then click on a thumbnail to take you to the report.|
|The "Font Options" button brings up a display that enables you to tailor the font: it's size, colour and family/face. Press the "HIDE OPTIONS" button when you are finished. It remembers your preferences across web pages for the current session, but if you close the browser and open it again, your font settings will be lost and you'll have to set them again.|
|The "Photo Album" button takes you to Elusien's Picasaweb page. Here you will find albums of photos, mostly from diving holidays, but more will be added in the near future.|
|The "Video Album" button takes you to Elusien's Vimeo web pages. Here you will find albums of movies, mostly collections of video clips from my digital camera.|
For those technically oriented:
some of the photos were taken using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 with a 12x zoom and image stabilizer. The earlier underwater photos were taken with my Olympus Mju 400 in its PT-016 underwater housing with 46mm UR/Pro filters attached. For later underwater photos I used my Canon Digital Ixus 850is camera in a WP-DC9 underwater housing. I also use this excellent little camera for above-water shots. The photos it takes are very good and the controls (which include an "underwater scene" setting) are clear and easy to understand.
See: www.digideep.com for information about underwater housings for other cameras.
I validated the HTML and the CSS using the W3C organisation validators:
Unfortunately, because browsers handle opacity differently, I have had to include a couple of browser-specific CSS declarations that cause strict validation to fail. But I think the effects that are produced warrant this minor infringement of the rules. To indicate this I use a slightly modified CSS validation logo in the footer of the web pages; it is red instead of the usual blue one and the tick is replaced by a line.
I have developed these web pages mainly in the Microsoft Windows XP environment, using a number of different browsers.
I have used the latest versions of these browsers, and I would advise you to upgrade to the latest version, if you
haven't done so already (especially Internet Explorer).
I have also tested these web pages on Linux, using the Firefox browser.
The majority of the testing though was done on Microsoft Windows XP (SP2) using the following browsers:
Firefox IE Opera Safari
I suggest that you print these pages with the option "Print Background Images" set to "Yes".
I am grateful to various people who have created resources, such as images, icons and CSS techniques, that I use on these web pages. In particular I would encourage you to visit the following websites if you decide you want to put your own pages on the web:
