Conformance to industry standards
Standards compliance is an integral part of creating functional and accessible websites. As a result, the pages on this site adhere to the following standards:
This site follows World Wide Web and it also complies as far possible with the recognised Web content Accessibility standards set by the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative. All pages are level A compliant which means that no users should find it impossible to access their content.
This site has been developed to ensure content is available to the widest possible audience, including readers using assistive technology (such as screenreaders) or accessibility features. Features employed in this site to make information more accessible are:
- The site uses CSS for visual layout. For optimal viewing, it is recommended that you use a browser with CSS2+ support. If your browser or browsing device does not support style-sheets, the content of each page will still be readable.
- All pages use structured semantic markup. For example, H1 is used for main page headings, and H2 for subsequent section headings within each web page.
- All text uses relative font sizes so text can be enlarged or reduced using the text size options available in visual browsers.
- All content images used include descriptive ALT attributes.
Where possible, we have provided alternative images for computers without flash installed. If you experience any problem viewing this website without flash please contact us.
