Special characters

The Met-Map covers areas from 15 countries. Local names on the map sheets, further in Descriptions, and the names of the authors in bibliographies should be typed in correct way, using special characters. We consider it as an important issue, however the realization is not simple. Appearance of the web pages depends also on the setting of user's computer, thus we can not guarantee identical layout on every computer.
- The texts are edited using only
Unicode ArialCE and Times New RomanCE fonts.
- On the Main Maps the geographic names are typed using English transcription.
- The web pages of the Met-Map are using the ISO-8859-2 Codepage.
- If you want to see the characters with special accents also on other web pages from these countries it would be practical to set the browser of your computer to Central European charecter set. For example in Netscape: View / Character Coding / Cental European (ISO-8859-2).

Met-Map NEWS are issued by the
Editor once or twice quaterly. These short e-mails inform about new features of the system, latest Main Map versions, Descriptions and Pin-Board Articles, which were placed on the homepage.

– If you want to receive the Met-Map NEWS periodically, send an empty e-mail to the
Editor with subject: "subscribe Met-Map NEWS".

– If you want to cancel your subscription than send an empty e-mail to the
Editor with subject "unsubscribe Met-map NEWS".
