An index for the guide

An index for the guide

This index offers direct links to all major assets in this guide. It does not, however, link to the thousands of image files, which branch off the individual route guides. Active links in this section are shown in bold light blue font, like this. Please note that the menu on the left will, as usual, take you back to the home page, print this page or take you to other important locations. Please see help, here or the question mark symbol in the menu itself - for guidance on how to use it.

The index itself is laid out in the form of a table. The most general items are on the left, and subsidiary and more detailed items on the right. On the extreme left, therefore, you will find the main choices - presented as buttons - which you find in the introductory section. These top-level buttons offer a range of choices, called 'chapter headings' in the table below. Some of these chapter headings are themselves similar to the introductory page, in that they are full page images embellished with buttons, which we call 'chapter sub-headings' in the table. These buttons themselves often offer extensive choices, which the table calls 'independent sub-sections'.

All of these independent subsections - indeed, anything with a white background, as opposed to a full page image - will show the mobile column of symbols which you can now see on the left. This is a menu which lets you jump to the main 'chapter heading' pages and to the introductory page, as well as to the top of the current page. (Other functions access the help page, print out the current page or end the application, leaving a bookmark.) As noted above, the help section discusses the use of this and other menus in much more detail.
