*   Configuring and Troubleshooting your Browser

When viewing this book there are a couple of things that could go wrong:

  1. Every so often I hear from somebody who observes that one or more of the chapters is truncated: it just stops in mid-sentence. This happens because of a problem in your web browser, probably a memory shortage. If this happens to you, you should try the following things:
    If all that doesn't work, consult your local computer guru. There is nothing I can do to help, other than rewriting the book, and I'm not going to do that.

  2. In your browser, the following should look like Greek letters: ``gp''. If they look like ``gamma'' and ``pi'' then all is well. If they look like Roman letters such as ``g'' and ``p'' then your browser has not properly loaded the symbol fonts. To fix this please refer to the font-fixing notes.
