All images are compressed to the smallest sizes, content is dynamically powered by CSS, and bandwidth-hungry features such as Flash and Java/Javascript have been avoided whenever possible.

Some pages and documents found on this site will require the existence of free third-party software on the viewing computer. These include, but are not limited to, PDF viewers (example: Adobe Reader or FoxIt Reader), the Adobe Flash Player 10, and Adobe Shockwave. Your browser may prompt you to install some of these programs when not found, the Grand Lodge of Mississippi is not trying to “send you” something.
