As mentioned above, stylesheets are used to apply the website’s visual design. This maximizes the availability of the content to users of non-graphical web browsers, i.e. the website is still entirely usable with stylesheets turned off.
The design uses what is called an ‘elastic’ layout, meaning that it stretches to best accommodate the text size set in your web browser.
The interactive map uses Flash. You will need the Macromedia Flash player plugin for your web browser in order to use this feature. If this is not an option for you, the maps are also made available as static image files that can be viewed and printed without the need for any special plugins.
As far as possible, links use text that is meaningful when taken out of context. Where this is not the case, they are given ‘
title’ text that describes the resource they lead to.
Relationships between pages are described using
<link> elements. These can be used as an additional navigation tool, if your browser supports them.
All pages on this website have been produced to conform to recommended web standards as defined by the W3C. Pages are marked up as XHTML 1.0 Strict and stylisation is effected with CSS 2.
