Website Display Problem

Some websites contain links to files saved in Microsoft Word .docx format. Depending on your browser, these may not display properly. If this is the case you can "right click" with your mouse and choose to download the file instead.

All documents on this website (as far as I know) are in pdf format and should open normally on your computer or tablet.

The fuller explanation is:

File formats
The content of some uploaded files may be delivered as an unusable sequence of bytes, without the accompanying data which allows it to be displayed correctly. The problem applies to 'Word' files with a .docx extension and to files created by more recent versions of other Microsoft software. That is because the later formats potentially include executable code, which is now explicitly blocked by the firewall. Whether or not you see this problem will depend upon which browser you use to view the site and possibly which Office software you have installed on your machine. The best current advice is to save and reload such files as PDFs (which can be read on any platform), or using an earlier format like .doc. Further checks on the file extensions and mime-types of uploaded documents are in the pipeline.
