“Hijos de Rivera SAU” seeks that the presentation of all the essential contents and functionalities of its website is independent of any physical devices and web browsers used. It also seeks such information to be encoded with free and open technical standards, and accessible to any browser adapted to people with sensory, motor or cognitive imparments.
The content is coded in XHTML format, a hypertext composition language, an open standard developed and recommended by the W3C, the Web Consortium.
The elements that constitute the content (images, text, structures, links) are written in accordance with the priority level of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
Style sheets (CSS, another W3C standard) are used to assign the presentation formats and to distribute the contents and links through the pages.
It is recommended to use the latest versions of browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Konqueror, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.
The European Union, in its Council resolution of March 25, 2002, encourages member states to take into account the need for digital content to be accessible. Following this recommendation, the Lei 34/2002, of July 11th, on services of the information society and electronic commerce,, stipulates that public administrations will adopt the necessary measures to make their online information available and accessible to people with disabilities and of old age, in accordance with the content accessibility criteria commonly recognized, before December 31st, 2005.
In accordance with this objective, the design of the website of “Hijos de Rivera S.A.U.” was developed taking into account the accessibility recommendations for the first priority level of the WAI guidelines (Web Accessibility Initiative) of the W3C.
