We have designed our site to meet the W3C ‘AAA’ standards recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium, which has been set up to promote world wide standards of access and to encourage wider use of the internet.
I wish I could claim to have had a hand in the production of this site but I cannot. My good friend Steve P took care of the standards compliance, and our design team managed to produce a good looking functional site without a single table! I can only claim to a little help with the occasional CSS problem and just about three years of solid evangelising for this level of standards compliance.
Well done to everyone involved.
Update: Steve P has pointed out that
For compliance, two automatic checks are required – the two I [Steve] used were Cynthia Says and LIFT, I must confess to not having remembered the former and never heard of the latter. He also mentions that some consider Bobby to be unreliable. I do now remember that when it changed hands (wasn’t it hosted at the BBC at one point?) it became less stable.
