We aim for our new site to be as user-friendly as possible whilst following the standards and guidelines set out by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in their Web Accessibility Initiative. This means that, wherever possible‚ all users can enjoy the same quality of experience.

Standards compliance

Visual design


Where links do not contain a full description of the destination page, additional information can be found in the title attribute. If you are using a mouse or other pointing device‚ these can be viewed by hovering over the link; this information can also be accessed via a screen-reader or other browsing aid.

Pop-up windows

The use of pop-up windows on this site has been kept to a minimum. If a link opens a new browser window, the reason for this is explained in the title attribute of the link.

Changing your browser settings

As the website uses cascading stylesheets throughout, you can use the features of your browser to adjust the font size, colour contrast and other visual elements.
