  • Links on the open in new windows.
  • All links can be followed, regardless of the internet browser you are using. There are no ‘JavaScript pseudo-links’.
  • As much as possible, the links included on are written to make sense out of context. There are numerous browsers, such as Opera, Lynx, JAWS and Home Page Opera, which can extract the links so the user can browse the list away from the page.
  • Many of the links on this website have title attributes which help to describe the link in more detail. That’s not the case where the link already accurately describes the target.
