Standard Compliance

All pages comply with priority 1 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Acces­si­bi­lity Guidelines and the FRG BITV (Barrie­re­freie Infor­ma­ti­ons­tech­nik-Verord­nung).

All pages validate as XHTML 1 Transi­tio­nal.

Navigation Aids

All pages have meta-links (copyright, home, sitemap, help, textver­sion, language versions) to aid navigation in text-only browsers and screen readers. Mozilla users can also take advantage of this feature. Opera 7 has similar functio­na­lity.

Content is internally ordered as following: Center Column, Right Column, Navigation. Textbrow­ser and screen­rea­der therefore see the main content first. This also works when navigating with the TAB key.

All pages have a hidden link for quick jump to the navigation.

Pages use structured semantic markup.

All tables have properly scoped header cells, to allow screen readers to render them intel­li­gently. Where required, tables also have a caption and a summary.

There are no Javascript pseudo-links

Visual Design

This site use cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support styles­heets at all, the content of each page is still readable.

The layout is completely liquid, simply filling its viewport (window). This site should work with PDAs without any modifi­ca­ti­ons.

It happily accom­mo­da­tes resizing text and, as relative units have been used, text can even be re-sized in Internet Explorer for Windows.
