Screen resolution, browsers and assistive technologies

Screen resolution

The graphical version has been designed to be viewed on a monitor displaying 800x600 pixel screen resolution or higher.

The text-only pages can be viewed on displays with smaller resolutions and text-only browsers, even on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA).

This website was successfully viewed on a Palm M105.


The website has been successfully tested with Internet Explorer v. 5 and up, Netscape Navigator v. 5 and up, and, Lynx (text-only) browsers. We have not been able to test this website on many types and versions of browsers so we would be grateful for any feedback you may have about viewing in other browsers.

There are problems with the CSS driven graphical version of the site in Netscape 4.6. Please use the text only version if accessing the website with this browser https://concealedgarments.org/text

Assistive technologies

Accessibility approved

Design and navigation

The graphical version of this website has been designed using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), layers, HTML 4.0 and some JavaScript rollovers. The text-only pages are entirely written in HTML and do not use CSS. Tables have only been used to layout the web forms.

All text links to other pages on this site or to external websites are underlined. No other text is underlined.

You can switch to the text-only version of each page (in 'The Project' section only) by clicking on TEXT ONLY at the top left of the screen.

All pages should follow a logical tab order through text links and form fields i.e. you can use the 'tab' button on your keyboard to navigate the site. If you experience problems please see below for how to contact us.

Colouring and fonts

The graphical version of 'The Project' section uses dark brown text (#330000) for its paragraph style on a white (#FFFFFF) background. The text-only version is mid brown text (#660000) paragraph style on a cream (#FFFFCC) background. You can change the background colour of the page in the text-only version. The 'Search and Explore' section comprising the database uses dark brown text (#330000) paragraph style on a peanut coloured background (#FFCC66). If you would like to see an option for users to change the background colour of the page on the other parts of this site, or are finding it difficult to read the text or view the images please get in touch with us.

Verdana and Arial fonts are used throughout, defaulting to a sans serif font if these are not present on your system. All fonts are set in 'point' units.
