All of them are collated together and displayed here dynamically every time the page is refreshed. NO jQuery

Some tiny bits of javascript are used to process links, but the links still work if javascript is turned off in the browser.

Records of what was read and when, are collected without jQuery or cookies!

On top is this the content management system makes several database calls to render the menu, and to get and set parameters.

The page loads fast (usually sub 300ms) and works with every browser. No problems with jQuery being out of date or not fully compatible. No cookies to warn people about. This is the pingdom speed test result.

It also doesn't "bounce around" like some websites do as they load in, because everything is worked out and laid out by the system on the server before it gets sent to the browser.
