General HintsThese hints were compiled in 2001 for for my own system--Netscape 3.01 on a Macintosh, but they are mostly valid for other browsers, e.g. Safari (used now), Firefox and Chrome.
You can make the text more legible by using a larger font:
--Select Zoom In.
Most current web-files specify dispay width of 600 points, but some older one adjust instead to 65% of window width. Ordinary lettering is in size 14 font.
To get the most out of "Stargazers" take your time.... a great deal of material is covered here, and it is best assimilated one small portion at a time. Some parts (especially among those marked "(a)" etc.) can be skipped or skimmed.
--Use the Glossary
You may send me questions at the e-mail address on the bottom of the page, and I will answer as many as time allows . Please include your full name, age (or grade, college year, science background), regular mail address and e-mail address at which you are sure to be reached (it's frustrating to compose a detailed e-mail reply and have it bounce back as undeliverable!).
Also, please, only questions that are significant to you--I won't do students' school assignments for them! Over the years more than 500 answered questions were posted, and I might add yours too. See http://www.phy6.org/StarFSubj.htm or http://www.phy6.org/StarFList.htm.
