For screenreaders and other serial browsers, all the links, forms and text on this site should be as accessible with the keyboard (or equivalent pointing/actuating device) as they are with the mouse.

All pages have rel=up, home, section, and/or subsection links to aid navigation in text-only browsers.


Links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail

Links are written to make sense out of context.


All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics are background images or include null ALT attributes.

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.

This site uses relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size” option in visual browsers.

The content of each page is still readable if the browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets.
