We have tested this site on most browsers and it seems to look similar for functioning purposes on the majority of them. If you experience any difficulty with this site please let us know and we will try our best to improve your user experience on our site.
Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key. There are no official access keys on this site now. We have decided to remove them for the foreseeable future until we decide the best way to implement them for our visitors.
All pages on this site should be Bobby AAA approved, complying with all the Bobby guidelines. This is always a judgement call; many accessibility features can be measured, but many can not. When we say Bobby Approved we mean Bobby Approved Automatic testing.
We try to ensure at all times that all pages on this site are WCAG AAA approved, complying withall priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. This is a judgement call in some cases and we would appreciate your feedback if you think we can improve upon this in any way.

We hope that we have kept the navigation consistent in appropriate sections and easy to follow.
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 . Links are written to make sense out of context. All links should open in current browser window.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes. We are currently reviewing the site and the possible introduction of LONGDESC attributes for some images.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. It should be possible for you to change the text size on this site.
