  • Internet Explorer 8 (Windows)
  • Internet Explorer 7 (Windows)
  • Internet Explorer 6 (Windows)

The following Web browsers are NOT recommended for viewing the Compendium; they have problems that will never be fixed:

  • Firefox 2 and below – cannot wrap long names
  • iCab 2.9 and below – style sheets not properly implemented
  • Internet Explorer 3 and below – cannot display special characters
  • Netscape 9 – cannot wrap long names

Please note the following requirements for your browser and computer, if you want to see all of the features of the Compendium:

  • Unicode support – for the following Greek letters, mathematical symbols and Latin letters with diacritics, which are used in the Compendium:

    Special Characters
    GreekSymbolsDiacritics
    αGreek alpha±plus-minus signǎa with caron
    βGreek betaminus signāa with macron
    γGreek gammaen dashée with acute
    κGreek kappaem dashěe with caron

    μGreek mudouble primeǐi with caron

     rightwards arrowǒo with caron
        ōo with macron
        ǔu with caron
        ūu with macron
        üu with umlaut


  • Unicode fonts – Windows computers with Windows XP, Windows Vista or later should be able to display everything.
    Older Windows computers with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT or Windows 2000 should be able to display all of the Greek letters and all of the symbols except triple prime, because they are present in the supplied Arial, Courier New and Times New Roman fonts.
    Macintosh computers with Mac OS X 10 should be able to display all of the special characters, because they are present in the supplied Lucida Grande font.
    Macintosh computers with Mac OS 9 automatically use characters from both the standard MacRoman fonts (such as Helvetica and Times) and the Symbol font to display all of the Greek characters and all of the symbols except triple prime, so large Unicode fonts are not needed.

  • Frames – for some of the indexes.

  • Tables – for the contents pages and the data sheets.

  • Style Sheets – used throughout the Compendium.

  • Graphics – for the structural formulae and the index navigation buttons.
