Accessibility On This Site

We've tried 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.

Standards compliance

Most pages will comply with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

Valid Code

We've ensured that the majority of the pages on this site use valid xhtml and valid css to make sure that all modern browsers interpret these pages in the same way and that those using screen readers should have no difficulty in doing so.

Visual design

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 style sheets 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.
