We try to make our new site as usable as possible whilst also following standards and guidelines laid out by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in their Web Accessibility Initiative. This means that wherever possible, all users enjoy the same quality of service.
Most pages will comply with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
All other pages meet priority 1 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
All pages validate as Transitional XHTML 1.0.
The site will use cascading style sheets for visual layout, meaning greater usability for assistive technology.
The site will use 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 will "degrade gracefully" so that it is still readable.
Links have title attributes that describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target. If you are using a mouse, or other pointing device, these can be viewed by hovering over the link text.
The use of pop-up windows on this site has been kept to a minimum. If a link opens a new browser window then this is explained in the title attribute of the link.
Changing your browser settings
It is possible to change fonts and colours used throughout the site by having stylesheet enabled links on the site
