Click on the link to be taken to your topic of interest.

  • Clicking on a heading (such as you just did) implements the show/hide feature for the text under each heading. If you click the heading again, the section will collapse/expand back to its initial configuration. All sections in the full view are expanded initially except for the Table of Contents. One benefit is that this allows one to collapse the sections in which he/she is not interested and see (and print) only those that remain expanded for easier navigation of the QMP. Note: If a browser is not capable of performing this trick, the user will be redirected to the Full View version.
  • Another feature of having the QMP online is that one can search the text using their browser's search feature. For Internet Explorer, select "Edit" from the toolbar at the top of the screen and then "Find on this page..."
  • A third feature is easy navigation using the Table of Contents. Each section is linked so that when one clicks on the title, he/she is taken directly to that part of the eQMP.
