Used Link colours
: colours used for links (and visited links) in the left and right-hand
navigation bars. Note: the green underlined rollover
state for these links doesn’t show in Netscape Navigator
"Links": link style
used for bottom navigation area and for "more".
"Links": link style
used within the content of the page.
The link hierarchy indicator or "depth gauge"
(for example home >articles
at the top of the content area of each page provides an easy way
to go back to a higher level.
Additionally some of the coloured bold titles in the "content"
and "latest entries" (home page only) link to pages or
Basically any text that changes colour when you move the mouse pointer
over it will lead to another page.
The top, left, bottom navigation bars are fixed
and have the same links on each page. Links in the top and bottom
bar are duplicates and lead only to the major landmark or overviewpages
for each section. The left-hand side navigation gives direct access
to a wider range of pages, including some content pages within different
sections. The right hand side navigation bar varies with the content;
as indicated it has either some links relevant or contextual to
the main content or/and external links, as well as links to the
Quick Ref(erence) popup windows.
We only used popup windows from links where
it wouldn’t have made sense otherwise, i.e. a bigger image
display from photographs of articles or journal / india diary and
the statistical information contained in the Quick Ref(erence)s.
The individual Quick Ref links open up a popup
window with a brief statistical overview of that particular state
or place. The data used origins from the CIA
Factbook India, Britannica
2002 and the census
of India. We accept no liablity for the accuracy of the data.
Where we saw fit, some links are duplicated,
there are several different ways to get to certain pages. Please
don’t get annoyed, we certainly didn’t try to lead you
up the garden path.
