- This page has a purposely white background to improve visibility by older browsers.


If you got to this tutorial from a link sent to your Hotmail account, the tutorial will not work. Please read on.

Opening any link in Hotmail actually opens a browser-within-a-browser (MSN logo and the text "You are visiting a site outside of Hotmail. To return to Hotmail, close this browser window. " is at the top.) This hotmail feature is very, very "buggy" and will not work with secure websites.


Copy the link, OPEN ANOTHER BROWSER WINDOW, and paste it in a NEW browser window. The MSN logo should not be in the little window at the top of the screen.

The browser industry has changed a lot in the last four years. This change has supported standardization, which greatly improved the accessibility of the internet to peoples with disabilities. This movement has begun to create more web pages that are accessible to everyone regardless of disability, browser or operating system.

This tutorial was created to meet these standards.

The following browsers have been tested, and work with this tutorial:
