Icons

There are several icons that can be found throughout the site indicating a variety of elements. There is a box with an arrow heading out of the top right corner. This icon indicates that if you follow the link, you will be leaving the GAATES site and going to an external link. There is a box with PDF on it, indicating that the document you are about to open or download is a PDF document. Similarly, there is a box with the text Word on it, indicating you are about to open or download a Microsoft Word document. In each of these cases, it is not possible for GAATES to guarantee the accessibility of the document, especially if the materials originated with an organization other than GAATES.
