Which World Wide Web browser?
There are a wide variety of browsers available for navigating the World Wide
Web. The following list shows those browsers that are known to be compatible

is not exhaustive and you may prefer to use a browser not listed here.)
How to configure your World Wide Web browser
In general terms we recommend accepting the default settings of your browser.
Because mathematics in abstracts is provided as small graphics files you may
find that the default proportional font of some browsers rather small in
comparison. If this is the case, check your browser's proportional font
settings and alter them accordingly. We recommend Arial or Helvetica 11pt for
best on-screen presentation.
Due to the large variety of browsers in use, IOP
Publishing cannot offer detailed technical support on how to configure your
browser. If you are having problems with your browser software, refer
to its documentation or contact your system administrator.
