HTML and CSS
National Library of Medicine (NLM) Web pages must be authored in structural HTML5. Page authors should follow accessibility guidelines in compliance with Section 508 and the WAI so that our site’s content will be made available to the widest possible number of people, browsers, and Internet devices. In addition, all HTML must validate.
