Access keys

Most browsers support jumping to specific links via keyboard shortcuts. You can use the access keys listed in the table below from anywhere on this site, but the shortcut combo is different depending on your computer:

  • On Mac: control + access key
  • On PC: alt + access key
Access key Target
⌃ 1 (alt 1) Home page
⌃ 2 (alt 2) Skip navigation
⌃ 9 (alt 9) Contact
⌃ 0 (alt 0) Access key details

Standards compliance

All pages comply with priority 1 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.

All pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict and are served as XML to browsers that explicitly accept application/xhtml+xml MIME type in their HTTP_ACCEPT header.

All pages also feature structured semantic markup completely separated from the CSS based visual design. That means that you can read and navigate this site easily on virtually any platform and browser without any problem.


Many links have title attributes which describe the link in detail, unless the link itself already clearly describes its target. All links are written to make sense out of context to accommodate browsers that can extract links on a page and let users browse them as a list (JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, Opera, etc…).

There are no “javascript-only” links anywhere on this site, all links can be followed in any browser with Javascript off.


When appropriate, images have an alt attribute that either describes the image content or its purpose, depending on context.
