From time to time a page may not display as you'd like. This can be caused by issues such as missing graphics or elements being stored (known as cached) from a previous session.

If you run into any such problems then it is best to completely refresh your page. To do this either hit the refresh icon in your browser tool bar or, on your keyboard, press Ctrl and F5 together.

If you find that the text is too large or too small then there are ways to increase or decrease the font size. This is also dependent on the type of browser you are using.
