We use avoirdupois (av) ounces and pounds.  The avoirdupois (IPA) system is a system of weights based on a pound of sixteen ounces. It is the everyday system of weight used in the United States.  It is still widely used by many people in Canada and the United Kingdom despite the official adoption of the metric system, including the compulsory introduction of metric units in shops. It is considered more modern than the alternative troy or apothecary or the medieval English mercantile and Tower systems.

The content of this web site is arranged in groups.  Links among the groups and item-to-item were established to move from one to another.  These links take the form of images and underlined text.

Links can take you to a completely different web site, another page on this web site or another document location on the same page.

Often it is convenient to use browser utilities like the vertical scroll bar or the keyboard arrow and pagination keys to move up or down within a document. At times, it is more convenient to use the BACK control of the browser as opposed moving vertically within a document to find a link.

Text Links

The traditional way to link within hypertext documents, such as this web site, is to use colored, underlined text. On this site dark blue is used for both text links and most paragraph headings. One example of a dark red text link is HOME which brings you to the front page of this web site.

Text links are either white or dark red and underlined. Text that is not colored is not a link, even if underlined.

Another text link example is colored, bright blue and underlined Institute Communication Manager, which launches your client E-mail utility to send a message to Sacred Heart Institute.

Image Links

When moving your mouse over some images, the mouse pointer will change its displayed form to identify the image is a link. This "mouse-over" method of linking is used on selected images throughout the web site.
