As far as possible, we have tried to ensure that:
- all pages comply with priority 1 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

Throughout this website you will find that:

- all pages can be read when style sheets are turned off or are not supported
- we will ensure that equivalents for dynamic content are updated when the dynamic content changes
- we have avoided content that causes the screen to flicker
- we have used the clearest and simplest language appropriate for a site's content
- we have only used HTML tables to tabulate data and they have not been used to structure or lay out pages
