Standards compliance

This website aims to conform to:
W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2 priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines
XHTML 1.03
CSS 2.04


For those using screen readers, you have the option to skip to the navigation

The pages on this website are all print-friendly - just the Cairngorms Learning Zone logo and the page content will appear on any printouts you make

All pages are designed using CSS - no tables whatsoever have been used in the design of this website. However tables have been used to format tabular data in some parts of the site.

Structure and presentation have been completely separated - the HTML documents contain just the text that you see on the screen and some structural tags (for example, and are not used on this website)

All text is assigned a relative font size - this means that you can resize the text if you want to (see “Resizing the text”).

All informational images have been assigned descriptive ALT text and decorative images are either relegated to the CSS document or have a null ALT attribute.
