Standards compliance

As best we can determine, all pages on this site are WCAG AAA approved, complying wih all priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Again, this is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.

  •     All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. This is not a judgement call; a program can determine with 100% accuracy whether a page is valid XHTML.
  •     All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H4 tags for subtitles.

Links

  •     Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article).
  •     Links are clearly written to make sense out of context.
  •     Any link which opens in a new window using JavaScript also has a none JavaScript alternative.

Images

All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.


Visual design

  •     This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  •     This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size” option in visual browsers.
  •     If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
  •     This site is useable on every browsing device including WebTV, PDAs, Smartphones and older computers.
