Guiding Principles

  • All pages should be concise and clear and include a page metadata summary
  • Where possible pages should be supplemented with graphics, pictures and relevant links
  • Pages should be well structured, using headings and subheadings (i.e. H1,H2) to break up the text
  • Hyperlinks should describe the destination of the link rather than using the url in the text.
  • Images should all have Alt text that describes them

There is more detailed guidance available when using images in the images checklist and on adding documents in the documents checklist.
