  • Alt-0     this accessibility features page.
  • Alt-1     Home page.
  • Alt-2     Search Engine Optimisation.

Further Accessibility

With usability, accessibility and portability in mind, this site is written in XHTML 1.0 Strict and uses CSS 3 to give an elastic design which will display well on any screen size and browser.

The size of the text on this website is set in qualitative instead of quantitative terms. As a result your web browser can easily override the base text size and all of the text will change relative to the size you specify. This is easily demonstrated using Microsoft Internet Explorer's 'Text Size' option: to increase the size of the text select 'View' -> 'Text Size' -> 'Largest': this increases the size of all the text proportionally.
