Site and Accessibility Information

This site has been designed to be as accessible as possible. By separating the content from the presentation using CSS and XHTML it will enable a wide range of computing platforms to access the site and ultimately be device independent.

The site validates to W3C published CSS and XHTML 1.0 guidelines and passes Level Double-A of the W3C-WAI Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. Visitors can check for valid XHTML page conformance by clicking on the XHTML link at the bottom of each page.

Print specific stylesheets have been implemented so that content will be formatted without menus when printed.

If you should experience any problems please contact the webmaster via the contact form.
