The site has been designed overall to comply with international standards and is periodically checked with the following tools.
- HTML 4.01 Transitional:
- Page validity can be checked using the W3C Markup Validation Service.
- Cascading Styles
- Style sheet validity may be checked using the W3C CSS Validation Service.
- Level 3 Accessibility:
- Accessibility compliance may be checked with Watchfire WebXACT (successor to Bobby).
- Browser compatibility:
- The site looks best on modern standards-compliant browsers. It should degrade gracefully text-based and older browsers.
Because the User content area is individually typed, some pages may not be compliant. Individual pages may be checked using the Edit Page Tidy button. We are looking into ways of enforcing compliance!
