Test Website

Valid XHTML

HTML is a mark-up language used to create websites, and is independent of platforms.

"HTML is not a programming language, since HTML does not allow to, say, control a robot, set a variable or programme a game." (Quelle)

The display of invalid or incorrect documents depends on the software reading them (browser, roboter, screenreader, etc; see above). However, the display will vary greatly depending on the software, and this can lead to errors, often without the knowledge of the website manager, since it is impossible to test the website against all updates of all the software.

Non validated HTML source text can cause high costs, especially if it causes the software to look for an error or if the functionality and therefore the user experience is impacted.  


Further information:
The validity of the HTML source text can be checked with a so-called 'validator'.

Acronyms: 
HTML: HyperText Markup Language

The tested website appears to use HTML, but the source text contains errors. Use the Qualidator SiteAnalyzer to find the errors on your site. Please note that it is not sufficient to validate the homepage only. To optimise access it is necessary that all pages are validated, so that display errors in various browsers can be avoided.

Visited Links

Marking previously visited hyperlinks helps users to identify which pages of the website have previously been read. In other words, according to Nielsen the navigation interface should answer three essential questions: "Where am I?", "Where have I been?" and "Where can I go?"

The tested website does not support fully this type of marking.

Resizable Fonts

Not all visually impaired people make use of technical support to navigate on the internet. The feature to increase fonts is an important element to ensure that all information of the website can be read by all users. Even people who are not visually impaired need to increase the font sometimes. At the same time, an increasing number of older people surf the web; they too need a feature to increase the font. To this purpose, it is important to define the font size not in pixel, but in percentage or "em".

"Prioritizing Web Usability" by Jakob Nielsen/Hoa Loranger

The font on the tested website cannot be increased and defined with the automated browser feature "Text Size".

Suboptimal Target

When clicking on a link, web users expect to see the new page in the existing window. Most users lose control if there are several windows open, are unable to navigate back with the back function and get lost. At the same time, and this is particularly true for old computers, the system can get overloaded and crash if too many browser windows open. If new windows open but are not seen by the user, the perception is that the website does not work properly. Experienced users who want to open new windows know how to do this by using the function "Open (link) in New Window", or with similar comands.

There is one important exception to this rule: files in .PDF or other Office format can be opened in new windows. Users know to close them to return to the original window. In this case, users should be informed that a new window opened, and they should be given the opportunity to save the file.

Technical hint: For XHTML Strict in particular, there is the possibility to send a .PDF file with ContentType "application/pdf" and HTTP Header content-disposition: attachment; filename=filename.pdf, since there is no target attribute. This test does not take it into account yet, but this is a feasible solution.

At least one Office file was found which did not open in a new window.

Spaghetti Markup

Separating design and structure of the website carries great advantages. The sharper the distinction, the more independent the two areas are. A lack of such a distinction is also called a "spaghetti mark-up" or a "tag-soup" (from the term "HTML tag").

Nowadays it is easy to save colours, type fonts, design images and to a large extent even the layout of the website in CSS files (CSS = Cascading Style Sheet).

Hint for IT technicians: "Code" does not refer to javascript, but to HTML source.

The tested website contains spaghetti mark-up; morevover, it is not or not fully defined in CSS Format.

Privacy Policy

The owner of the website uses the Privacy Policy to inform users how personal data will be treated and how data protection regulations will be observed.

No Privacy Policy or any information regarding data protection was found on the tested website.

Adjacent Links

Accessibility guideline 10.5 for web content 1.0 W3C, dated 5th May 1999 states: "Until user agents (including assistive technologies) render adjacent links distinctly, include non-link, printable characters (surrounded by spaces) between adjacent links." http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT.

This means that subsequent links should be separated by a printable, non hyper-linked and free-standing character. The prolem is easily solved by using a navigation list for the links ul. Additional characters can be added with CSS.

Many subsequent links insufficiently kept apart have been found on the tested web site.
