General Site Structure

The Canadian Military History Gateway primarily operates with a three-panel page structure.

  • Global Panel - This panel displays the Global Menu Bar, page headers and, on the Flash Web site, the interactive Timeline.
  • Left Panel - This panel displays the Left Navigation Bar providing Search capabilities and access to the text-based HTML Timeline, the History Browser, Glossary and Online Reference Books.
  • Main Content Panel - This panel displays a variety of site content, specific site features, and search result listings.

A couple of the pages on the site (the Help page and the History Browser homepage) operate with a two-panel structure, omitting the left panel.

A Site Map displays a hierarchical index of the static pages on the Gateway Web site, and provides links to those pages.
