Design considerations

Screen readers
For users of screen readers, at the start of each page you have the option to skip the navigation to main content.

Text size
All text is assigned a relative font size allowing you to control the text size, to increase the text size:
Internet Explorer: View > Text size
Netscape: Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts
Opera: File > Preferences > Fonts > Minimum font size (pixels)
You can also scroll with the wheel of your mouse whilst holding down the control key.

All informational images contain an ALT tag and decorative images have a null ALT attribute.

The use of white background throughout the site, with plain black text, makes reading easier on the eyes, and allows the reader to take in more information.
