Visual Design

The TFL website utilizes the following:

  • Cascading style sheets to control page elements. Style sheets can be turned off the page.
  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript are properly identified.
  • Relative font sizes; text is resizable.
  • Limited usage of tables. Tables are labeled when relevant.
  • Color is secondary to meaning.
  • Non-flickering screens.
  • Links have title attributes or descriptive targets. Links are written to make sense out of context. Link text is not duplicated (same text means same link).
  • Images have ALT attributes.
  • Contact information is available on every screen.

Navigational Elements

The TFL website utilizes a standard template with navigational elements as follows:

  • Pages are keyboard accessible using the tab key.
  • Links titles are clear and concise and make sense when read out of context.
  • Horizontal navigation links are located at the top and bottom of each page.
  • Vertical navigation links are located at the right of each page.
