I visited your site and looked at your browser test area
http://online.luc.edu/index.real?action=technical&baction=browsertest


This is a very useful way of ensuring compatibility to your website.
Some users may have problems with some requirements.

I would like to recommend that you simplify it.
Whilst users are proceeding with the browser test they do not need links to
other parts of the site.
You are not being productive with the real estate, users are unlikely to
start visiting your site until they have completed the test.

It would be clearer if each test provided a link dependent on its success or
lack of. Ant that the means of contiunuation were consistent.

eg
Cookies                     yes : continue
or
Cookies                    no  : continue

with liks to: details for those interested

At present every single page of ~6 has a different format
eg click continue, click yes, click yes if else, click yes or no...

I found this veryconfusing someone with cognitive problems, or new to
computing, the client group for these pages, would have real problems.

It is not necessary to show the behaviour of javascript, shockwave or real
to indicate success, and seems to me to be confusing in your implementation.
