Compatibility with Standards
his site has been designed and programmed following the directives of the WAI initiative (Web Accessibility Initiative), meant to set up international standards in the creation of web contents which are accessible to all users.
A number of measures have been taken in order to make the site more accessible. Some of them are mentioned below:
- Logical order for the presentation of elements on the screen.
- Simplified navigation system, no scroll-down menus are used.

Most links with a text not describing the complete destination have "title" attributes with an explanation.
When possible, links are written in a way that they also make sense out of context. Some browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx and Opera) can extract the list of links from the current page and allow the user to surf from that list.
