Standards compliance

  1. All pages on this site are WCAG AA approved, complying wih all Priority 1 and 2 Guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

  2. All pages on this site have also been validated using Wave to verify compliance with the guidelines. Again, this is always a judgement call; many accessibility features can be measured, but many can not.
