Searching for a name. Most browsers have the capacity to "find" a name or word. The easiest way to locate a name or move about the page is to use your browser's "find" capability. If you are using Netscape, click on Edit on the menu bar above. One of the options that will appear is "Find in page". Click on "Find in page" and insert the desired name. You may use the same technique to move about the page if you wish to reach a particular point. I assume Microsoft's browser Internet Explorer and others work in a similar fashion.
