What does it mean that the website was “reinterpreted”?
It means that the code underlying the website was re-done, without greatly changing the appearance of the pages. This was done:
To allow us to add some new features we have planned for the future, to greatly improve the site's ease of use.
To allow the scientists to modify page content easily, for more frequent updates.
To improve the site's standards compliance. For example, tables are no longer used for layout (for which they were used extensively before), and web standards are used to display non-english characters.
To improve accessibility. For example, the menus and column headings use text now rather than graphics.
- To improve the site's transfer speed on slower connections. For example, graphical elements are no longer used for layout (images on the Home page have been reduced from 25 to 6).
We hope you like this “new” website. We have some great things planned for the coming months, as we continue to improve it.
Please feel free to give us feedback about the website.
