This website had to prove good under various browsers. It has been optimised and thoroughly tested for my favourite browser Firefox, but also for Opera, Safari, Chrome, Konqueror, and Internet Explorer. To be on the safe side, please use the latest version in each case. A very old (most notably, for instance, Netscape Navigator, version 4) or an exotic browser might not represent the pages to one’s satisfaction, neither yours nor mine. This applies also to Explorer’s outdated versions 5 and 6, which don’t conform to CSS specifications. This site needs to rely on the (today obvious) ability of your browser to handle Style Sheets. On the other hand Javascript may be disabled without great loss if you don’t like it. But please enable Javascript if you love the touch and feeling of the nowadays much spread Lightbox galleries. And please enable cookies (one single cookie will be set for session control; it will be deleted when you leave this site). Without cookies you would not be able to make orders.



By entering this site the presentation is automatically adapted to the size of your screen. But if Javascript is not enabled, screen size cannot be established. In this case you are offered the possibility to adjust the display to the conditions of your screen. This is done by clicking the appropriate button. For a later change the same choice is available below. Note that small screens, in our meaning, possess a width of about less than 1250 pixels (most probably 1024 pixels), wide screens accordingly more (mostly 1280 pixels).



You will find the most important links on the top of each page of this site. The footnote at bottom right corner informs you about the chosen language version, the actual dollar exchange rate, the date of the last revision, my e-mail address, and the total number of visits of this site. For your ease, all over the site there are tooltips available: Get more information by letting the mouse pointer rest a moment on any button. To change the language from English to German please use the button at the top right corner.



As a help for myself I appreciate hints and ideas to correct or improve my website (my English). Please leave an eventual feedback on my e-mail account
