Moving around quickly within the site? Knowing where you are!

PHS Website pages contain different coloured (and usually underlined) words ("links" in the jargon) that transfer you around the Web Site. Links between related information are the big advantage of this electronic technology compared to the normal printed document. There are also links which can connect you to other sites via your Internet connection.
To help you keep track of where you are all "core" pages in this site have the same colour scheme as the main page with the distinctive "degradee" stripe at left margin. The various articles included have a white background.

Access PHS pages directly

If there is a page that you use regularly, you can go directly to it at any time by adding it to the "Favorites" or "Bookmarks" menu of your web browser software. Just go to the page you want, then pull down the "Favorites" or "Bookmarks" menu and select the "Add" option. Next time you want it, you will not need to go through the menus - access it directly from the "Favorites" or "Bookmarks" menu.
