- All pages on this site aim to validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional and use CSS 2.0 for visual presentation. Use of tables for non-tabular information is kept to a minimum. This may cause older browsers (e.g. Netscape 4.x) which do not understand standards-compliant code to display pages in a very basic way. However,the pages should still be usable. Wherever possible, we would recommend upgrading your browser to the latest version number to take full advantage of this site’s advanced presentational features.
- All pages on this site showing this icon use structured semantic markup.
- HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles and H2 tags for subtitles.
- Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out by a screen reader so that it may be easily skipped.
