colophon: about the site
The Ayres Townshend Associates website conforms to the following standards:
- Valid XHTML 1.0
- Valid CSS, level 1
- Level Double-A conformance, W3C-WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0
When we designed the Ayres Townshend Associates website, we wanted to make something that was accessible but, at the same time, also visually interesting. We have achived this by extensive use of Cascading Style Sheets, which separates the presentation from the structure.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are quite extensive, but enabling the end user to re-size the browser window and the layout, and to change the font size and colours are important factors if you want to create an accessible website. The main reason for doing this is to make the site more user-friendly and legible for the end user. Please try and alter the site appearance by changing the browser settings under 'Tools' and 'Internet Options...'.
