IT Web Standards
- Editorial Style - We use The Associated Press Stylebook (AP) for most stylistic decisions, with modifications to better serve writing for the web.
- Usability - Giving users easy access to our content and services is our priority, so we base our categories and page structure on usage metrics and established usability practices.
- Semantic Markup - Our markup is semantic; it describes the content in terms of headings, lists, paragraphs, and special sections. Semantic markup makes it easier to apply need-specific formatting with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
- Formatting and Accessibility - We want our pages to be easily reformatted, so we try not to build formatting into our markup. This is key to our accessibility strategy, and gives our pages longevity.
- Technological Specifications - We use XHTML 1.0 Transitional for markup and CSS 2 for formatting to make the site available to the broadest possible audience. Our choice of technologies changes over time.
Although we make some of our own graphics, we also use creative common licensed icons from the following creators:
