Standards Compliance

All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional, validated style sheets are also used to lay out the visual look of the site.

By our best interpretation of the guidelines of the World Wide Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines this site passes priority 1 and 2 checkpoints. Many points of these guidelines can not be qualified directly but we have taken all appropriate measures to ensure as close an implementation as possible.

All images use descriptive ALT tags.

Relative text sizes are used throughout, allowing users to resize the page text.

A utility to increase/decrease text size is built into the top of every page
