How To Navigate This Site
Use the next and previous links at the top and the bottom of each page to flip through the pages. Alternatively, you can use the right and left arrow keys on your keyboard. Some additional keyboard shortcuts are provided via the accesskey feature: n next, p previous, u up (= to the parent page), i index, s search and m menu (= open/close sidebar).
Click on the hamburger button in the topbar to open and close the sidebar. The width of the sidebar can be adjusted by dragging its border. Click on the title in the topbar to scroll to the top of the page, if already at the top, go “up” to the parent page (eventually ending up on this very page).
On touch-enabled devices: Tap at the top of the page to show the topbar (if it was scrolled away); swipe from the left edge to show the sidebar, swipe towards the left to hide it.
