Radford College has taken care to create an interoperable Web site that validates XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2.0 standards by The World Wide Web Consortium. This website is XHTML and CSS compliant and it's content is fully accessible to screen readers and text browsers. It's been written in valid XHTML using the latest CSS methods for presentation and layout. This means we follow the W3C standards for XHTML 1.1, CSS2, and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
This website uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) throughout the site to style web pages. The use of CSS means that web pages are smaller in size, and more accessible to all browsers. To view the site with CSS, you will need a browser that supports CSS level 2 or greater. Unfortunately, many older browsers don't support the CSS standard properly, and may fail to render web pages correctly. Other browsers that simply choose not to support CSS will render plain HTML and should not have any readability problems.
Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article). Links are written to make sense out of context.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes.
