2. Standards compliance

The OUCS web site has been written in XML 1.0 and is converted to HTML 4.01 (Transitional) when requested by a browser. The HTML output from our system aims to be at least WCAG A approved which means complying with all priority 1 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Our pages will be brought up to level AA to meet the University's requirements and we will implement as many of the priority 3 guidelines as possible. However, there will be parts of OUCS web site that do not reach A approved standard at present. If you experience any problems with such pages please contact the Webmaster.

Presentation of the site content is achieved by using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). We use relative font sizes to allow the end user control over site text size.
