Compatibility with standards

All pages comply with the Accessibility Guidelines or General Principles of Accessible Design established by the Work Group WAI, part of the W3C.

Specifically, this website conforms to Accessible Web Content Guidelines 1.0, level A.

All the pages have been created in accordance with the Recommendation XHTML 1.0 of the W3C for Web development with semantic and structured markup.

The presentation layer has been drawn up under W3C CSS2'. Recommendation of the W3C on Cascaded Style Sheets, Level 2 (CSS2).

To see how these standards affect the accessibility of a website, check out Dive Into Accessibility, an excellent resource which explains, with examples, how these directives help a series of users with limitations when browsing the web.


Links

Whenever possible, the links are written so as to have meaning outside of their context. Some browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links from the current page, allowing users to browse using this list. Bearing this in mind, the links are not duplicated; any duplication is due to them accessing the same content.

There are no JavaScript pseudo-links. All links can be followed from any browser, even when JavaScript is disabled.


Visual design

The visual design has been completed using CSS. If the browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets, the content of the web page continues to be entirely legible thanks to its structural markup.
