Standards Compiance

  • All pages are Bobby AA approved, complying with all priority 2 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
  • All pages on this site use structured semantic markup.


  • Links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail.
  • Wherever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.
  • There are no "javascript:" pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off.
  • There are no links that open new windows without warning.


  • All content images used include descriptive ALT attributes, and TITLE attributes where applicable.


Visual Design

  • This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  • All font sizes are relative and can be fully changed in your browser.
  • Internet Explorer and Firefox have a text resizing feature ("View" menu, "Text Size"), as does Safari ("View" menu, "Make Text Bigger/Smaller"), as most browsers do - consult browser help for others.
  • If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
