If you use Netscape Navigator, you may also want to change the rendering engine to Internet Explorer style for more seamless browsing.

As a Netscape Navigator user, you may encounter an error message that states that "mhtml is not a registered protocol" if you click the "Patristics Project" link under "Original Language Texts" or the "Return to title information" link on the "Migne Title Files" tab. Therefore, to change pages in the individual title catalogues, please click the page tabs at the bottom of the screen.
