Marrickville Council's current website was launched on 23 October 2007. The site has been designed to work with all modern browsers; it has been tested for compatibility and consistency with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Internet Explorer.
Council is working continuously to improve its website. Along with improving the site's usability and ease of navigation, Council is also working towards full compliance with World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards and best-practices.
Potential barriers to accessibility have been systematically identified and removed. So far as part of this process, a vast majority of tables used for design purposes have been removed from the site's mark-up, with design elements instead being handled by DIV tags and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
The transition to CSS has made the website quicker to load, easier to keep consistent in look-and-feel, and far easier to use for people with assistive browsing technologies such as screen-readers.
Specialised pages that were previously designed for Internet Explorer, such as our interactive mapping system, have also been systematically upgraded and are now fully compatible with all modern browsers.
This site may appear differently on some old browsers that do not support CSS, with a basic layout and much of Council's branding, fonts or colours not visible - despite this, all content remains accessible.
