This document is roughly a hypertext tree, and the icons
at the top of each page are to help you navigate the tree. The tree has several levels,
which come together at the Contents Page. Each level down the tree
represents an increase in the amount of detail provided, but you can read at the level you are
comfortable with by using the "Left" and "Right" icons as described below.
The pages are numbered with numbers like 4.3.1, which you can think of
as section 4, subsection 3, subsubsection 1. Above page 4.3.1, there
is 4.3, for example.
Every page begins with a table of contents showing all the pages that live
below the current page. You can go to any of them by clicking on the
corresponding entry. The table of contents might be empty, in which case
there are no pages below the current page.
Here's what the various navigator icons at the top of each page do:
Takes you to the Home page, the first page you see.
Takes you left one page on the current level. For example, from
page 4.3.2 to page 4.3.1. It is blanked out in case there is no
previous page on the current level, e.g. 4.3.1 has no previous page.
To get from 4.3.1 to 4.3, use the Up icon:
Up a page
This takes you up a node to the parent. For example, from page 1.5.3 to
page 1.5. If you are on a page 1, 2, 3 etc. (just a single number),
it takes you to the Contents page.
This is the opposite of Left page; it takes you from 4.3.1 to 4.3.2,
Table of Contents
Takes you to the table of contents for the entire document.
Remember that whenever there are pages below the current page, a table of contents
appears at the top of the page. Just to the left of the table of contents,
there is a shortcut icon for descending one level:
Go down to the next page
This icon appears to the left of tables of contents, and it is a
shortcut which always takes you to the first entry of the table.
