Times Font

"Times New Roman" is the font mostly used in printing. For online usage, however, it is advised to use it with a size of 12 points or more. Basically, Nielsen does not advise to use it, as it is not perceived as being professional and does not appeal to any age group.

"Prioritizing Web Usability" by Jakob Nielsen/Hoa Loranger

The tested website uses (among other fonts) Times New Roman.

Meta Description

"Description" is used to summarise the content of a HTML-page as short and incisive as possible. The content of this meta information is not shown to the user in the internet browser, but search engines do use them to a certain extent to evaluate the relevance of a site for the results page.

The description summarises the content in one sentence. The summaries are normally shown on the results page of search engines and contribute a great deal to the choice of web users.

Text in all Upper Case

A text in upper case reduces the reading speed by approx. 10%. The single words of the text are not easily recognised by the eye, and the whole text blurs into a block. A text in upper case is perceived as aggressive, amateurish, childish and unprofessional. Use upper case only for short titles.

Source and further information:
"Prioritizing Web Usability" by Jakob Nielsen/Hoa Loranger.
Compare also with Schriver, Karen in Dynamics in Document Design, page 274:
"When text is set in all capital letters, reading speed is slowed about 13 to 20 percent. Reading speed is optimal when  uppercase and lowercase letters are used. When extra emphasis is needed, bold has been found to be a better cue than uppercase."

The tested website contains some text in upper case.

RSS or Atom Feed

RSS is a technique that allows users to subscribe to contents of a website such as news, reports, blogs, etc. Atom is a format competing with RSS.

Newly published content is regularly and automatically downloaded on the subscriber's computer or other devices thanks to RSS or Atom. This allows the subscriber to keep up to date.

Functions based on RSS are increasingly integrated in existing applications, like e-mail programmes or web browsers.

Further information:

Acronyms:
RSS: Really Simple Syndication, also called Rich Site Summary or RDF Site Summary

No contents in RSS or Atom format were found.

Table Summary

Depreciated: "The

summary attribute is not supported in HTML5." 

"The TABLE element takes an optional SUMMARY attribute to describe the purpose and/or structure of the table. The overview provided by the SUMMARY attribute is particularly helpful to users of non-visual browsers."

Further information:
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-TECHS/#gl-table-markup

No tables or not enough tables containing summaries were found on the tested website.

Table Header

Table headers should be recognisable as such, since they perform a descriptive task. This allows disabled users an optimised user experience with tables.  In addition, this allows a simple unified formatting of all tables on the website through CSS.

The tested website contains some specially marked table headers, or none at all.

Number of Nameservers

DNS assigns an IP address to the names of servers on the internet. It is advisable, to increase the availability of a website, to use several name servers. RFC2182, section 5, suggests to use a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 name servers.Source and further information:

https://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc2182, and https://www.rfc-editor.org.
 
Acronyms:
DNS: Domain Name System
IP: Internet Protocol

The tested website contains less than three name servers.

Nameserver Location

Name servers should be placed in different physical locations.

"It is recommended that three servers be provided for most
organisation level zones, with at least one which must be well
removed from the others.  For zones where even higher reliability is
required, four, or even five, servers may be desirable.  Two, or
occasionally three of five, would be at the local site, with the
others not geographically or topologically close to the site, or each
other."

Source and further information regarding the amount and location of a second name server can be found in RFC2182 3.1.
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2182.html

The name servers of the tested website are probably in the same physical location.

Image with Missing Width or Height

Missing height and width size of images is a typical error in HTML, which impacts the performance of the website. A precise definition of height and width allows a quicker download of the website, as the browser recognises the space needed for the image and can leave it empty.

Source and further information: http://de.selfhtml.org/html/grafiken/einbinden.htm#breite_hoehe

At least one image with missing information about height and width was found.

HTML Class and ID Names

To abstract design from the structure and the content, HTML should contain classes. Classes are invisible to web site users, and allow to classify elements, paragraphs, areas, etc.

The website designer can select and re-format classes with a stylesheet. Classes are only necessary if they differentiate elements, paragraphs, areas, etc. A common mistake is for instance the classification of all elements of one type, which does not add any value but makes the HTML and CSS code unnecessarily long, complex and difficult to understand. Such cases are also referred to as "Classitis", see also
http://www.bs-markup.de/blog/archiv/2005/06/30/dr-css/ .

Another typical error is the wrong naming of the classes.

An article detailing these problems can be found on the seven49.net - Papers.
/Web/de/Papers_Links/Bezeichnung_von_IDs_und_Klassen.htm

One or more wrong namings of a class or ID have been found on tested website.
