The Internet portal www.osservatoriofm.it has been created using the programming code XHTML 1.0 Strict. Some parts of this portal have been dynamically generated, by collecting data from databases, and have been elaborated afterwards, so that there could be pages that are not accurately in accordance with the XHTML 1.0 Strict standard.

Sure that the final goal is not only to obtain stamps and certifications from the automatic validators, but to meet users' requirements, we consider that the essential point is the result in order to estimate the actual accessibility of the website. In case this may fail, please report it.

The graphical formatting of this portal has been created by Css version 2. In this way, contents and graphics are completely separated, so that a total access to the website is guaranteed to every user and main browsers, including not conventional ones (browsers for visually handicapped, textual browsers).  The weight of the pages have been reduced, so that the consultation of the page can be guaranteed even for users who do not have an Internet fast connection (ADSL type). 

The general access to this portal can be assessed as levels of priority (AA) established by the guidelines on accessibility of websites (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0), drafted by the W3C - WAI  group and the Italian Government (see text of Stanca law).
