A number of formatting conventions are used in the Legislative Documents. Not all World Wide Web browsers (the software you are using to view this page) can support these formats:
- Underlined text indicates new language that is being added to the existing statutes. Sample: This text is underlined.
- Struckout text indicates language that is being deleted from the existing statutes. Sample: *[
This text is struck out]*
If you see the underlines and strikeouts in these two samples, then you are all set to view the Legislative Documents.
If you see the underlines in the first sample but do not see strikeouts in the second sample, you can still view the Legislative Documents, but the strikeouts will not display. You can locate the struckout text by the *[surrounding brackets]*.
If you see neither the underlines or the strikeouts, then your browser cannot properly display the Legislative Documents. It is strongly recommended that you download and install a newer browser.
The following browsers are known to work:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.01 or later. Both Windows and Mac versions are available, and are free for all users.
- NCSA Mosaic version 2.0.0b4 or later. Both Windows and Mac versions are available, and are free for all users.
- Netscape Navigator version 3.0 or later. Both Windows and Mac versions are available, and are free for educational or non-profit organizations.
- Lynx. A character-based browser which runs on many different platforms, including DOS and UNIX.
NOTE: Lynx supports underlines but not strikeouts.
Follow the vendor's instructions to download and install one of these browsers. With a 14.4 modem the download should take about half an hour.
