“Hijos de Rivera S.A.” ensures that the presentation of all essential content and essential functions of the website are independent of the physical devices and web browsers used for such use, coded with technical standards which are free to use and accessible with browsers adapted to people with sensory, motor, or cognitive disorders or limitations.
The content is in XHTML format: a language of hypertext composition, an open, standard format developed and recommended by the W3C, the Web Consortium.
The elements that make up the content (images, text, structures, links) are written in accordance with level A priority under the Accessibility Directives for Web content of the W3C.
Style pages (CSS, another of the standards of the W3R) are used to assign the presentation formats and the distribution of pages to the contents and the links.
The latest versions of search engines such as Mozilla Firefox, Netscape Navigator, Opera, Konqueror, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc. are recommended.
The European Union, in the Council Resolution of 25 March 2002, encourages Member States to take into account the need for digital content to be accessible and, following this recommendation, Law 34/2002 of July 11, relating to services of the information society and e-commerce, provides that public authorities must take the necessary measures to make the information available on their websites accessible to the disabled and the elderly, in accordance with the accessibility criteria for generally available content, before 31 December 2005.
In connection with this goal, the design of the website of “Hijos de Rivera S.A.” has been carried out taking into account the accessibility recommendations for the first level of priority of the guidelines of the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) of the W3C.
