We believe the content on the Be Birmingham website should be accessible to anyone regardless of disabilities, circumstances or browser technology.
By using a core set of standards, commonly known as "web standards", and by choosing to keep accessibility in mind while designing this site I have increased usability and increased the potential audience that can access the web site's content.
The Be Birmingham website is compliant with both W3C XHTML 1.0 Strict and W3C CSS Standards.
