All pages are designed using CSS - no tables whatsoever have been used in the design of this website. However tables have been used to format tabular data in some parts of the site.
Structure and presentation have been completely separated - the HTML documents contain just the text that you see on the screen and some structural tags (for example, and are not used on this website)
All text is assigned a relative font size - this means that you can resize the text if you want to (see “Resizing the text”).
All informational images have been assigned descriptive ALT text and decorative images are either relegated to the CSS document or have a null ALT attribute.
We aim to make this website accessible to everyone. If you experience any kind of problem or have any feedback about it please email email@example.com.

The decision to use CSS2 was taken due to the very small number of Internet users browsing with these older versions (now less than 1%). We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
This website has limited CSS support for IE 5.5 & Below for the Windows based PCs.
This website has no CSS support for IE 5 & Below for the Apple Macintosh.
