Access Keys

Access keys are used on this site to aid navigation. On Windows you can press ALT + an access key and on a Macintosh you press Control + an access key.

There are no agreed standards for the use of access keys, but we have followed the UK Government guidelines as much as possible.

Structured and semantic markup

HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles etc.

Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists ensuring that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily

Images

All non-decorative images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes.

Font size

This site uses relative font sizes. This means that most text can be enlarged to the users needs in most browsers. If you have a "mouse wheel", try holding down the Ctrl key and rolling it back and forth.
