Standards Compliance

All pages are Bobby A approved, complying with all priority 1 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and with the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.

All pages validate as HTML 4 strict.

Navigation Aids

All the pages in the shop section have “next” and “previous” links to aid navigation through categories in text-only browsers. Mozilla users can also take advantage of this feature by selecting the View menu, Show/Hide, Site Navigation Bar, Show Only As Needed (or Show Always). Opera 7 has similar functionality.

Links

Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article).

Visual Design

All parts of the site use Cascading Style Sheets for visual layout and design. If your browser does not support stylesheets all pages should still be readable.

Text is sized relatively, so it’s possible to adjust the text size to your needs. To adjust the text size in Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firebird go to the View menu and select Text Size.

Images

All images contain descriptive alternate (ALT) attributes where appropriate.

Javascript

Javascript is not required to access or use any part of the site, but it may be used to enhance the experience in some situations. No “javascript:” pseudo-links are used. All links can be followed in any browser even if javascript is switched off.
