  • All images have text alternates (ALT attributes).

  • Pages are organised to be fully functional, even with javascript and CSS turned off.

  • Page formatting is done with CSS not tables, and image-replacement techniques have been used extensively to ensure that the semantic structure of the information is preserved.
