Standards compliance

All pages on this site validate as HTML 4.01 Strict

All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles. For example, on this page, JAWS users can skip to the next section within the accessibility statement by pressing ALT+INSERT+2.


Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.

This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers. You can adjust the size of the font through your browser's menu - in Internet Explorer, click on the 'View' button, then choose 'Text size' from the menu options and adjust accordingly.

If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.



This site uses a print stylesheet for printing purposes. This allows a page to be printed straight from the browser in a print-friendly manner.

Only the main content from the page will be printed - the top banner and navigation links will not be printed.
