Readability improvements to the OAR

I’ve been busy making our Oregon Administrative Rules site easier to read, thanks to plenty of quarantine time.

Links with parentheticals to the ORS

I leveraged our ORS database to enhance the OARs:

An OAR showing a link to a cited ORS
An ORS section cite turned into a link with a helpful parenthetical
An ORS chapter citation likewise changed into a helpful link

To show this info about the ORS, we need to query its database for the statute titles, and then insert them into the OAR pages. We’ll be rolling out more of these improvements as we go, building on the data we’re collecting.

Improved fraction typography

A small change, but I love these creating little features that improve the reading experience. Here’s Rule 603-022-0305, Egg Quality Grade Standards:
