- All pages on this site are WCAG AAA approved, complying wih all priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Again, this is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
- All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. This is not a judgement call; a program can determine with 100% accuracy whether a page is valid XHTML.
- All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, h5 tags for subtitles.
- All pages have up, skip navigation and home links to aid navigation in text-only browsers.
