About this site

Built properly

Valid XHTML 1.0! This website is constructed according to the standards laid down by the W3C. It is constructed from valid XHTML, and CSS for layout, ensuring that all Web browsers, including screen readers and mobile devices have access to the content. (See our accessibility statement.)

The body font (assuming you have it available) is Lucida Grande, and the headline font is Lucida Bright.


The site is built on a custom content management system, which uses XSL Transforms to apply a consistant look-and-feel, and Perl to hold it all together.

We also make use of:

…from the nms project
Perlfect Search
…from Perlfect Solutions
