Style sheets
This site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout. If your browser supports it, style sheets can be disabled or over-written to customise the appearance of the website, to your preference.

Font sizes
You can change the font size of each page to your preference through the browser.

Forms
Labels are used to assist access to form fields. All forms follow a logical tab sequence.

Tables
Tables are used to display tabular data. Tables are not used for general site layout. This means our tables are being used in a correct and meaningful manner.

Colours
The site has been designed to be easy to read through its colour combinations.

Links
We have worked hard to ensure that our links are meaningful, and some links are explained in greater detail by using a title attribute.

Scripting
JavaScript is used on the site to improve usability. All pages and processes are still accessible and usable if JavaScript is disabled or unavailable.

This website is built to HTML5 and CSS 2.0 / 3.0 standards.

If you do not have one of these browsers installed or are unable to upgrade, you may find the website easier to use by disabling CSS altogether – please see your browsers help documentation for further information.
