Font size and colour
On every page you can change the font size from small to medium or large. At the top of each page you will see three letter A's representing the three sizes. This is to aid changing font size without having to use you web browser. However if you prefer use your web browser text re-size option to select your preferred font size.
By clicking on the menu item at the top of each page you can select different colour text against different colour backgrounds, if you would prefer to see the site using different text contrasts. Go to Display Options.
