Standards used in Joomla
Looking at a new school website and the bursar has handed me this list of requirements.
standard as should now be UTF-8.
conform to ODA 1995 law
xhtml 1.0 strict
Formatting styles using CSS ( cascade style sheets) 2.0
I was hoping to use joomla 1.5 package but does it conform to these standards???
Yes Joomla 1.5 uses UTF-8.
As for xhtml 1.0 strict . CSS 2.0 this will be down to the choice of template you use. The ones that will be included in the 1.5 package have not been modified by myself so cannot comment.
ok Just to comferm the templates we use are based on other templates and the only thing that has changed are colours a few modules and some of the layout. Also not being funny where has he got the list from and why them tecnologys as xhtml look here http://docs.joomla.org/Tutorial:More...mla!_templates and css2 is same as css1 but more functions. and as for oda law we try our best there are plugins to enlarge text and most good web readers will not have a problem with joomla. ODA law is a very strange as if you want to understand what you need to do to conform to it good luck as it changes nearly every month but basicly people with disability who use the internet have programmes on there pcs to help the IE readers and with ours as it changes colour (you can modify the colurs to your liking ) you should not have a problem and I know of 2 schools that use joomla with a web reader with no problem.
