Accessibility and Standards


The bfi is committed to making all of its web content as accessible as possible, not merely through our legal obligations under the UK's Disability Discrimination Act, but also as a matter of principle to find as wide an audience as possible. To this end, we have adopted the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 as our standard of accessibility, and all pages on this site should comply with these guidelines.

You can find out more about Web Content Accessibility Guidelines on the W3C website.

Web standards

This site is built to comply with web standards, in particular XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS 2.0.

We've done this in order to separate the content from its presentation, making the site work on as wide a variety of browsers and platforms as possible. You should find this site as easy to use on a PDA as a stand alone PC.
