In most cases, the links have been included in such a way that they can be understood out of context. Links which require a description contain this in the “title” attribute, which clearly indicates the target of the link.

Furthermore, wherever possible, links to javascript functions have been avoided. This has been done in order to ensure that all links work in the same way in any browser, irrespective of whether javascript is activated or not.

Visual Design

This website uses cascading style sheets to display information. If the browser or device used to access the site is not compatible with cascading style sheets, the content of the website will still be fully legible due to its structural framework.


All images contain a brief description in the “alt”, “longdesc” or “title” attribute. The description text boxes for images which are only for decorative purposes are empty.
