2 If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.

3 All images used on this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.

4 Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.
