Navigation and Search
The structure of the Atlas is described in About. The search window on the left navigation bar provides returns to search items that appear anywhere on a page. Standard search conventions apply:
- terms separated by spaces results in an “All of these words (in any order, anywhere on the page)” search
- terms enclosed in quotation marks results in a “This exact phrase” (word string) search.
