Software for use with DAOL
DAOL makes use of a range of 'digital document' formats. These range from web pages (HTML) to 'print format' documents (pdf) as well as the option for authors to include audio, visual and graphical elements.
DAOL papers and discussions are displayed using HTML diplayed in a 'framed' interface. To make the most of this you will need to have an up to date web browser. In some cases you may need to check with your systems or technical support before upgrading. If this is not the case or you are using your own personal machine we suggest the following three browsers for use with DAOL:
Netscape Communicator 4.7x
Internet Explorer 6
DAOL papers and attached discussions are also available as 'prtable document format' files. These are formated for A4 printing in a standerd journal format. To view these files you will need a PDF reader.
Adobe Acrobat Reader
