Pages on our website

Wherever possible we aim to ensure pages are coded to the XHTML1 transitional standard.

Page structure

Each page has a clear heading. Any subsidiary headings are introduced in a structured hierarchy. They are also clearly marked up – main headings use 'h1' tags, subheadings use 'h2' tags and so on.

Links

We try to ensure that links make sense out of context or in isolation, and that they accurately describe the pages they point to. We also let you know if the links take you away from theAA.com or if they open a new window. You can use the tab key on your keyboard (as well as your mouse) to move consecutively from link to link. The same goes for forms, where you should be able to tab from field to field.

Tables

We only use tables for data. All our tables are clearly captioned so you know what data is being displayed and we ensure all columns or rows are clearly labelled.

Images

We ensure that there is a text description for all images (alt tags), unless they are being used purely for decoration or tracking.
