Web Site Help

 

The information presented on this Web Site is arranged in two basic page types these being section index pages and document pages. The layout of all pages comprises of four sections which are a header, a navigation bar, the page body, and a footer.

Page Header and Footer

The page header section always displays the Adena logo on the left with the page title in large letters on the right of the logo. The page footer gives the date the page was last revised and a copyright notice. The footer may also contain icon links to organisations we are associated with.
