The sources used have relative dimensions which allow the user to control the size with his navigator.

Navigation

The website allows coherent navigation maintaining the same structure in all its pages. This structure is composed of:

    * A horizontal navigation bar in the upper part of the pages with the links to the principal menu of the website.
    * A vertical navigation menu, located on the right margin to access the secondary sections of each menu, print and enlarge/reduce the size of the text.
    * Another horizontal navigation bar at the lower part of the pages, to access the sections on-line resources, web maps, legal notice, privacy policy, accessibility and contact.
    * A central area showing the contents of the web site itself.
