All HTML-based pages produced for The National Strategies are written to the XHTML 1.0 Transitional standard, use Cascading Style Sheets for presentation and aim to meet the "AA" conformance level of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. This means that The National Strategies' products can be viewed in all modern browsers, regardless of platform or device.

Some older browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape 4) do not comply with these web standards. A minority of our users still use these browsers and, as a result, will not experience the product as we have intended. They will be able to read the pages and navigate the product, but the product will look basic in comparison.

Text size

If you find that the text is too small for you to read, you can change it to a size that you are more comfortable with:

  • in Internet Explorer (PC), use the View, Text Size menu
  • in Firefox use the shortcut key Ctrl+ to enlarge and Ctrl- to reduce size.
