‘The init function runs when the page first loads onto the client computer and, if the screen resolution width is higher than 1250 pixels as it will be for many of the newer LCD monitors, then the font-size of the text within 'tablemenu' will be increased to medium.

However, if the browser recognises the syntax 'self.innerHeight...', the first stylesheet will have the td font-size set to 'large' - the insertRule method is only recognized by Firefox, Mozilla, Opera version 9.0 etc and not by IE or earlier versions of Opera.’

‘The first table displays a ballot box [ballotbox.jpg] in the top left-hand corner together with a label [Other stats] and the ASP linkbutton control mentioned above displays in the top right-hand corner of the page. This runs the linkToMainMenu function when clicked.’

‘A second table displays the options available under Other stats together with a random election result from the past. A javascript file is responsible for generating a random result and these go back to 1832 – check out the coding in the results.js file. Some of the stats available from this table include displaying the results for each country and displaying the total number of votes cast in the election.’
