Standards compliance

  1. All pages are Bobby AAA approved, complying with all priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
  2. All pages are Section 508 approved, complying with all guidelines of the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.
  3. All pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict.
  4. All pages use structured semantic markup.

  1. Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
  2. Whever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.
  3. Link text is never duplicated; two links on a page with the same link text always point to the same address.
  4. There are no "javascript:" pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off.
  5. There are no links that open new windows without warning.


  1. All content images used in the printing company home page and all archives include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
  2. Complex images (such as those used as examples to illustrate text) include LONGDESC attributes and links to text-only descriptions to explain each image to non-visual readers.

Visual design

The Impressive Images printing site and all its archives use cascading style sheets for visual layout.

  1. Internet Explorer has a limited text resizing feature ("View" menu, "Text Size").
  2. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
