Jesus College, University of Oxford is aware of the importance of the internet and is endeavouring to make the content of its official website widely accessible. This web accessibility statement relates specifically to the official Jesus College website, with addresses beginning www.jesus.ox.ac.uk. If you have any feedback on this site, or comments to make regarding its accessibility, please email the Webmaster.
- These pages are intended to meet the checkpoints of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) to Level AA standards, as required by the University of Oxford Web Accessibility Policy, except where stated below, and to Level AAA where possible.
- This site complies with the standards for W3C CSS Version 2 and either W3C XHTML 1.0 Strict or W3C HTML 4.01 Transitional.
- By default, pages delivered are compliant with W3C XHTML 1.0 Strict. Old browsers which identify themselves as Netscape 4.7 are served pages which comply with W3C HTML 4.01 Transitional.
- Access Keys are used to implement 'Skip Navigation', 'Home', 'Site Map', 'Search' and 'Feedback' links.
Where WAI Conformance Level AA Is Not Met
- §3.7 Quotations are not marked up with Q or BLOCKQUOTE tags, because of the inconsistent way in which browsers render these elements.
- §13.1 There are some pages for which link phrases are used more than once to point to different resources. For example, there are pages where 'Contacts' in the navigation bar points to the main Contacts page, and 'Contacts' within a subset of the navigation bar and/or a page points to a different Contacts page within that section of the website. Different TITLE attributes are used to avoid confusion.
