The VAA sites are best viewed with the latest version of
Internet Explorer but will

Most VAA sites are designed for screen resolutions of either 800x600 pixels
or 1024x768 pixels. On a 640x480 screen, the graphics and text will appear larger

should be able to see all of the main screens without scrolling. The sites will
resize according to what your resolution is set to. To change your screen
resolution, look for "Display Properties" or "Monitors & Sound" in your Control Panel.
The VAA sites are best viewed when your default font is set to "Medium" on
