Web Standards and Accessibility Guide

Standards versus recommendations

This document consists of both standards and recommendations that, loosely defined, are "musts" and "shoulds", respectively.

We've tried to write this guide so that laymen can, at the very least, understand the issues involved in making web sites accessible if not solve the issue themselves. We consider the W3C web site as the ultimate guide to for web standards, however, the instructions on that site are written for experienced web developers.

[ icon for recommendation ] Recommendations of the Guide; there is some leniency here.

[ icon for standard ] Standards as set out by the Guide; these should not be broken.
