We have put much effort into making this 2004
Interactive Annual Report universally accessible
and legible for all our visitors. We have designed
this site using simple and consistent page layouts,
minimized the use of graphics and photos, and
provided descriptive ALT text when images are
included. We have kept backgrounds simple, and
adjusted their contrast for better legibility.
In addition, we have used standard HTML throughout
the site, and created descriptive links that can
be understood both in and out of context.
Additional suggestions for increasing the accessibility
and legibility of these pages are welcome.
