The redesigned FLAIR website incorporates improved accessibility features. Added accessible design elements include:
To use the accesskeys, hold down the alt key [Mac users: control key] and press the relevant number key. Note: accesskeys work in a limited number of browsers. In Internet Explorer, you may need to press enter after using the accesskey. In Mozilla, Netscape 6+, and Opera 7+ the link should be automatically activated.
We have decided to use blank
alt attributes where images are
used only for decorative or layout purposes, including photographs of people.
Text equivalents have been provided where images contain content. Please
contact us if you would like us to revise this approach.
Tables have been replaced by Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for page layout, in
line with contemporary web design trends. The use of Cascading Style Sheets has resulted in a reduced size of page
.html files, and a more streamlined visual appearance.
Throughout the site, structural markup has been used. Page headings and
sub-headings are indicated by the use of the header elements
h3 etc. Important items have been highlighted with
the use of
em, and lists have been marked up
This site makes use of Java scripting for non-essential features such as the display of dates on the footer, and filtering of publication data.
