About this site
Standards compliant code
The Melbourne Airport website is designed for compatibility with Web Standards, ensuring maximum compatibility with current and future browsers and platforms.
Where possible, the website conforms to the W3C XHTML 1.1 and CSS specifications.
Content and presentation are separated on the Melbourne Airport website via the use of CSS. This means that the content is accessible in any internet device, even if it does not understand CSS.
A modern Web browser is recommended to view the intended visual presentation of the Melbourne Airport website: older browsers offer poor support for standards and often incorrectly interpret newer CSS code. For this reason, these browsers are presented with the unstyled plain content instead.
The Melbourne Airport Web site utilises Flash for the presentation of some interactive content, such as:
- Interactive map of the airport
- Live Flight Radar
- Melbourne Direct Web site
- Airport development - Interactive timeline
