The pages on this website are all print-friendly - Just the text 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.
The 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.

This website relies on CSS2, which is unsupported by IE 5 and below and Netscape 4.7 and below. It can still be accessed on these browsers but with no styling applied to the pages. The decision to use CSS2 was taken due to the very small number of Internet users browsing with these older versions (now less than 1%). We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
This website currently has no CSS support for IE 5.5 & Below for the Apple Macintosh.
