Q: Can we link to your web sites?

A: Feel free to link to this web site but please ensure you use the correct URL's, which is not what you see in your browser. We're at a temporary web space at the moment so using the ones you see in your browser are wrong and will change in the future. Using the correct URL's will ensure your links do not break, these are given below:


Q: You don't have the e-book in a downloadable format that I want to use. How do I get one?

A: We are sorry, but we cannot create every e-book format and concentrate on the ones we have tools for i.e. Palm eReader, Microsoft Reader and HTML. (The e-book production software is quite often just too expensive for a 'labour of love'!) However, many e-book readers understand the simple HTML format e-book we supply i.e. MobiPocket. Alternatively you could use this as a basis for creating your own e-book if you have the tools.

If you need some help then please contact us. Don't forget you can also 'capture' this site with web clippers such as AvantGo or iSiloX or point them at a downloaded and uncompressed version of the HTML e-book mentioned above.


Q: Can we download your e-books and put them on our site?

A: We'd rather you didn't and would prefer you to link to this site as explained in the question above. Please use the correct URL's.


Q: Can we use the book cover images from your site, on our own sites?

A: Yes, you can use any of the book cover images on your site, all we ask is that you provide a link to us. Please ensure you use the correct URL's.


Q: I'd like to get a printed copy of the e-book, how do I do it?

A: Well you can only really print one page (chapter) at a time. Go to the chapter you want to print and have a look at 'Print Preview', if your browser supports it, you may have a pleasant surprise. This web site uses a much simpler format for printing.


Q: The e-book web site looks different on my browser i.e. not 'book like', why?

A: We've tested this web site in a quite a few internet browsers. It's funky and 'book-like' on WinXP with IE 5/5.5/6.0, Mozilla (1.8a2), Firefox (0.9) and Opera (7.63). On the Mac IE 5.1.7, Mozilla and Safari 1.2. For older versions of IE and the Gecko browsers - we hide the style sheets so you get a fairly text only view. The same applies to browsers which do not support Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). It also works well in text only browsers, like Lynx for example.

For PDA's and newer phones you'll get plain a 'text like' view if your browser does not understand CSS (for example IE in Windows Mobile 2002). If your device does understand CSS, you may well see the big screen 'book-like' version of this site, which is wrong. Currently we know that the Palm and Opera browsers for PDA's and some phones do this, but it's their fault not ours :) If your PDA or phone browser correctly understand the 'handheld' CSS, ( IE in Windows Mobile 2003 for example,) then you get a better formatted, but mostly text view, of this site - which is correct.
