The main site content is centrally located on the site, with the links located above, below and to the right of the main contents.
The site uses W3C validated CSS and XHTML. We believe that all pages are WCAG AA compliant.
Text links are used as an alternative to or an addition to graphical links. ALT and TITLE attributes are used throughout.
Links: We do not permit you to scroll vertically more than three screen lengths - at a resolution of 1024 x 768 - without an up link.
Links can be identified by:
- Blue coloured text; and/or
- Underlining of text before or after hovering the mouse over the text; and/or
Please note that all links both internal and external links open in the same window. If you wish to open a link in a new window then simply right click on the link using your mouse and select the 'new window' option.
Skip Navigation: Hidden 'skip navigation' links have been provided to enable people using screen readers to move from the top of the page to the beginning of the "main content" of the page. In this way they can skip over the repetitive navigation links.
Tab Keys: These can be used to move from link to link. Once the required link is selected, then press the enter key. Pressing the Tab Key and the Shift Key together will allow you to navigate backwards through the links.
Directional Keys: The 'Up' and 'Down' arrow keys can be used to scroll up and down the page.
Spacebar: The spacebar moves the page down. It will also move the page up if pressed in conjunction with the shift key.
Backspace: The backspace can be used to go through the pages already visited.
Breadcrumbs: We have created a 'breadcrumb' trail at the top of each page. This provides links in a backward linear manner to help users browse for information.
