environment for demonstrating many of the principles set out in the

access to an extensive reference collection. The website holds coloured
versions of illustrations given in the book and where relevant they
are dynamic and interactive to demonstrate functionality discussed in
the book. All hyperlinks (URLs) given in the book are accessible via
this website, and even more important, are maintained. If a URL mentioned
in the book is no longer accessible an alternative for that particular
URL is given. A URL alteration or an updated figure/illustration is
indicated by a red dot .
Although, the URLs are regularly checked it is possible that some of
the URLs are not accessible because their server is not 'in the air'.
The site is divided into four different sections: an 'About', 'Contents'
'Search' section and the homepage (see also the sitemap).
The main navigation (on the left side of each page) contains four buttons
that directly take you to the separate sections mentioned above.
