Navigation & Search

It is worth taking a little time to familiarise yourself with the Navigation & Search facility. Those of you with Internet experience will find it very straight forward.  Search using 'Find on this page' if using Windows Internet Explorer.


This web site has been constructed using Microsoft Frontpage©.   Most of the main links are on the HOMEPAGE/CONTENTS.  There are many more additional hyperlinks on the various pages to return you to the appropriate page and other 'book-marked' areas within the text.  These hyperlinks are coloured and underlined.  The numbered reference links within the squared brackets [ ] , are also hyperlinks and work in both directions on the same page.  Many of the wreck names, for example, are hyperlinked to take you to a further page which may have a photograph, extra text or both.

Remember to use the browser's BACK Arrow (OR Tablet Back Arrow) to return to the text particularly when there are no obvious hyperlinks on show to take you back to where you were. Lowercase words, coloured and underlined within the text may be hyperlinked to a 'Glossary' page, the BACK arrow will bring you back to the text.  A browser like Windows Internet Explorer will normally have a 'Find on this Page' facility. If you would like to search specific issues of the Scillonian Magazine on a particular page e.g. Number 200, type 200/ into the 'Find on this page' search box.


Search for Compiled E-Book Versions Only

The E-Book version of this web site has been compiled using an E-book program called 'HyperMaker©'.  The advantage with the compiled version of Scillypedia is that it has its own, very fast search engine.  Searching for occurrences of a word will take place over all the pages. This should be achieved in under one second and all pages found appear in a column on the left hand side of the page.  Click on the individual pages shown, search terms that match are highlighted in BLACK. 

Start by clicking the 'Search Panal' icon on the E-Book Toolbar, this will open the Search Box on the left-hand side of the screen.  Enter the text to be searched at the 'Curser' in the 'Search' box.  Remember that with a web based E-Books like this, a 'page' also refers to a complete section or chapter.  Single words like nouns respond well.  Two words like Black Rock will find the words 'Black' and 'Rock' on the same page.  Do not use hyphens or commas.  If you would like to search a specific issue of the Scillonian Magazine e.g. Number 200, type 200/ into the Search Box. 

Remember to use the 'BACK' Arrow on the Toolbar to return to your previous screen or page, particularly if there is no obvious method of return.

Close the 'Search' facility when not required to maximise the screen width.
