The purpose in adopting a specific style is to make all HEASARC pages uniform and professional in appearance. Although general guidelines leave much for individual interpretation, the following standards need to be considered closely:
Headers and Footers
RequirementsThere is a standard header for every HEASARC page. There are seven for general pages, and seven for the seven GOFs. The seven main navigation headers are in the /docs/ directory and are called heasarcnav.html, obsnav.html, archivenav.html, calibnav.html, swnav.html, toolsnav.html and eponav.html. When creating new pages, determine which header is most appropriate and include it at the top of your file. The headers contain the </head> and the <body> tags so you should not put those tags in your files.
At the bottom of every file, just before the </body> tag, you should include the
mainbuttons.html file which is in the
At the bottom of HEASARC pages it is optional to use the standard "lhea_footer" referenced from the /docs/lhea/lhea_footer.html file in an include statement.
