- Navigation is consistent throughout the site.
- The main navigation menu is on the top of each page.
- Section links can be found in both the dropdowns or the left hand column of the respective section.
- The footer contains redundant top level navigation links.
- The “look-and-feel” of the website is controlled by style sheets. As a result, users have the option to alter this website’s appearance by substituting their own style sheet.
- If style sheets are disabled, all content is still readable
Increasing the font size

- Unless they are purely decorative items, all images used on this web site have suitable Alt (alternative) attributes.
- Content should be usable/accessible with images “off” (disabled).
