General Navigation Points to Remember
The new web site at its most basic level, has more graphics and pages than its earlier sturdy predecessor. As we grow our companys web site this trend will continue. The pages are linked together withtext hyperlinks, indicated as blue underlined text areas or hot linked graphics. When you move your mouse over a hyperlink, whether it is text or a hot linked graphic, the standard mouse pointer will change to a hand icon. For each instance where a hyperlink is clicked on, you will "launch" or "start" a new page.
Please note: (After you have visited a web page, the text hyperlink you clicked on may turn a different color.)
Most of the graphics or clip art illustrations on the Cornerstone Properties, Inc. web site contain hyperlinks to pages, so feel free to use the graphics to go to a new page by clicking on them with your mouse button, alternatively you may use the corresponding text. Graphics which have been hot linked to pages do not change color after you have clicked on them, but text hyperlinks do.
