This site is designed in such a way as to allow users to change text size depending on their preference.
On each page, there is a + (plus) and – (minus) button, which allows you to increase or decrease the font size. There are 5 settings – the default setting is the middle one.
If you use a keyboard, you can normally hold down ‘Ctrl’ and use the plus and minus signs.
An alternative option is to adjust the settings of your browser.
For Internet Explorer:
View > Text Size > Smallest/Small/Medium/Larger/Largest
For Mozilla, Firefox, Netscape 6+:
View > Text Size > Increase or Decrease

Every effort has been made to ensure that this website is coded to the highest standard. This means using XHTML for markup and CSS for presentation and ensuring code validates wherever possible. The site also adheres to the general spirit of “web standards” by using semantic markup.
All images on the site should have corresponding ALT text provided so that they can be understood by non-visual readers.
Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
Whenever possible, links are written to make sense out of context.
