Structured, semantic markup: Headings and navigation menus
HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles, and so on.
Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily.
All content images used in this site include descriptive alt attributes. Purely decorative graphics include empty alt attributes.
We have checked the site's font and background colour combinations against the different colour blindness conditions and ensured that all information is still clear.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the use of structured semantic markup ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.
Java script is used on the website to improve usability and is required for online shopping. However it is possible to browse the website without Java script.
Linking text has been written to make sense out of context. Where appropriate, links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, for example to advise you if the link will open in a new window.
