Best Practices

Leave the classes and divs with their current names.

From time to time, we will make small improvements to the CSS to ensure that it works properly in new browsers, to enhance the style, or to add new functionality. If you rename the classes and divs these future enhancements will not work.

You must have copyright to the photos you use

Keep the copyright documents to all photos on your site or obtain written permission from the photographer before using it on your site. Agencies have been sued over photography copyrights.

Do not link “click here”

Make sure your linked words describe where the link goes. Reader software for the blind reads the list of linked words on the page, and the visitor will have no idea where “click here” links to. Search engines also use linked words as search criteria, which has lead accessibility professionals to term Google, “the largest blind user on the web.”
