Summary of Content
This javascript allows a large document to be split into manageable pieces with a forward / back buttons as necessary for navigating between the sections. Note that the first section has no back button and the last section has no forward button. The example is followed by the coding. I'm sure you will find a use for this nifty piece of coding courtesy of Dynamic Drive

A double mouse click anywhere on the page (except when over hyperlinks) will take you back to the top.

example
The text below is an example of fitting a large amount of text in a limited space.

The sub-sections include photographs in.... Portugal, Ireland, Devon, Germany, Belgium, France, The Broads and anywhere else I may visit..... If you were 'there', and would like to have your own photographs included in this collection, please attach your digital format photo(s) using the email link below, or lend me your 'conventional' camera negatives or slides for scanning. They will be returned!
I will probably need to optimise, re-size etc., and (subject to web space) publish them as soon as possible, with an appropriate acknowledgement, if you don't like the result let me know!. Any contributions will be for use on these pages only and will, of course, remain your property.
As I attempt to add text comments to the pictures, please don't hesitate to let me know of any inaccurate details (names, places, dates etc.)
