Frequently Asked Questions: Topics

About Technology and Site Development

Can I use frames on my site?

No. Frames are outdated and create obstacles to accessibility for sight impaired and other users.


Can I use Flash on my site?

Sure. But sparingly. Don’t build your entire site in Flash because it will create accessibility problems. Don’t put critical content such as your contact information in Flash. But certainly go ahead and create Flash movies of non-critical content, such as photo slideshows.


I found a very cool new technology I’d like to add to my site. Is that a problem?

Depends. You should not add any new technology to your site without first contacting Web Services. We want to check to ensure that the script or code doesn’t create issues for users of different browsers, delay the download time of your pages, or create other problems that hamper performance or accessibility.
