Standards compliance

  1. All pages (except colour guides) on this site are Bobby AA approved, with many being Bobby AAA approved, complying with all the Bobby guidelines. This is always a judgement call; many accessibility features can be measured, but many can not. Designer Colours have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
  2. All pages (except colour guides) on this site are WCAG AA approved, complying with all priority 1, 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Most of our pages also comply with priority 3 guidelines. Again, this is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. Designer Colours have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all the pages comply with priority 1 and 2 guidelines.
  3. All pages on this site are Section 508 approved, complying with all of the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.
  4. All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.1. Any page can be automatically validated with 100% accuracy whether it is valid XHTML.
  5. Designer Colours have tried to make the Colour guides as accessable as possible, however due to the information they contain they can not pass full accessibility compliance.


  1. All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
  2. Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.

Visual design

  1. This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
