Markup and headings

This website has been built to modern web standards using valid HTML and CSS. We have used headings properly to help assistive technology users browse the page content. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles.

Links

Links are written to make sense out of context, and ideally the link already fully describes the target.
