The College of Lake County has redesigned their web site. In an effort to provide a better experience for our web visitors and make our content more accessible to visitors using assistive technology, we have upgraded our site to meet W3C web standards.

What are web standards?

Web standards are set by the World Wide Web Consortium ( Using these standards avoids proprietary code that may only be supported in a particular browser making the web more accessible to everyone regardless of the device they are using.

What do I need to do?

The developers of the browsers listed have committed to supporting web standards. If you are using a version 4, or lower, browser, consider upgrading to a standards-compliant browser. If you're using a standard-compliant browser already, you also may consider upgrading to the latest version. Upgrading your browser is free. Doing so will improve your web experience.

Do I have to upgrade?

No, that's one advantage of using web standards. A web site built using web standards may not look as the web designer intended in older browsers that do not support these standards, but it should still be usable.

What if I use AOL?

If you experience problems using the AOL browser, just minimize your AOL window and use one of the browsers listed.
