Accessibility

Standards compliant

Web-standards based coding separates a website's informational content from its appearance (presentation design). Separation of content and presentation has many benefits. For example, browsing applications that do not support CSS, can still "read" the website content (screen readers, PDA's, mobile phones, tablets, etc.). This website was coded using human and machine friendly, structured, semantic markup. Visually, the design is created using cascading style sheets CSS.

Coding is valid (x)HTML5.
