This page explains the meaning of symbols and notations used throughout my pages.


Pages on the internet usually describe a network not only covering pages the author of the current page wrote. Following links can lead the reader to locations under foreign control. In fact, this interconnection is the main strength of the internet.

It should be clearly understood, that in no way I want to claim any rights or even ownership of pages, which can be reached by following so called external links. For such pages soleily the respective publishers should be honored. The use of distinct symbols is an attempt to distinguish between internal and external links. With this help, you might decide yourself, wether you want to follow a link by opening a separate browser window or tab or just use the same browser window or tab.
