The notes are laid out as a single HTML file which is designed to be viewed in a mobile device. This means that you can load it and it will display the headings at the top. You can then click on any heading to view the relevant explanation. From there, you can either scroll up and down through the text or you can use the back button on your browser to return to the headings. A standard web version is also available (see link below).
You can access the document live over the internet but better is to obtain a copy and store it on your mobile device so that you can view it without a data connection. Top
