Standards compliance

Mater considers standards compliance to be an integral part of creating functional and accessible websites. As a result, the pages on this site adhere to the following standards:

  • All pages on this site adhere to the WCAG. This is based on a determination—many accessibility features can be measured, but many can not. All the pages in this site have been reviewed using the guidelines, and we believe they are all in compliance.
  • All pages on this site are valid XHTML. This is not a determination—a XHTML parser can determine with 100% accuracy whether a page is valid. For example, check this page for validity.
  • All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. <h1> tags are used for the page heading, <h2> tags for main headings, <h3> tags for subheadings, <li> tags for list items, et cetera.
