Important note to all end-users with browsers not supported on this site:
Although we try to implement a working design strategy that addresses the concern for "backward compatibility" there are considerations that limit such support:
1. Older browsers do not support current technologies that incorporate essential dynamic html technologies. (i.e. Dynamic menus that increase screen 'real estate')
2. Older browsers have difficulty reproducing complex tables and CCS that ensure design uniformity throughout a site.
3. Although Netscape Communicator 4.7x and 6.x went through a number of upgrades/patches over the years Netscape no longer provides updates for this product at all; end-users are now directed to the version 7.0 link.
