  • Pages on this site aim to conform to both the spirit and the letter of the United Kingdom Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
  • All pages on this site adhere to current web-standards, and validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

Links

Linking text have been written to make sense out of context, and, wherever possible, title attributes which describe the link in greater detail have been added.

Images

All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics are either applied using CSS, or include null ALT attributes.

Images used for headings are applied using CSS – since the heading exists as text behind the graphic, ALT attributes are unnecessary.

Font Sizes

You may change the font size of this document via the preference-settings of your browser.

Additionally, all modern browsers (with the exeption of Internet Explorer for Windows) allow resizing of text via the keyboard using CTRL ( apple-control for Macintosh) and the '+' or '-' keys.

Colours

This site's font and background colour combinations have been checked against the different colour blindness conditions and ensured that all information is still clear.

Tables

Where tables are used, they contain tabular data only, and are not used for layout.
