About the Site

Welcome to JoinTokyo.org, the website of the Tokyo Development Learning Center. This is version 2.0 of the site.

Version 1 launched in June 2004 and served the TDLC well for its first year. However, as we grow — and as the needs of our partners and visitors grow — we needed a site that could support those needs and provide a strong foundation for the variety of technical and functional enhancements we have planned.

We've tried to keep the best from the original site and to focus those qualities even more for our partners and readers. We'd love to hear your thoughts or comments on the site to see how we're doing and how we can make it better. Feel free to contact us and we'll do our best to promptly reply to your input and suggestions.

Code and Style Sheets

JoinTokyo.org uses XHTML and Cascading Style Sheets for its layout and presentation.

This approach has significant advantages: easier development and maintenance; a faster loading site; and the separation of content and presentation opens the way for our content to become portable over a range of devices and delivery mechanisms.

The site works best in modern, standards-compliant browsers such as Firefox or Safari. While it may not look quite as good in older or less capable browsers, it should still function perfectly well: another advantage of XHTML and CSS.

Accessibility

We are striving to make this site as accessible as possible to readers who may be vision-impaired or who are otherwise accessing the web with the help of assistive devices. We are firmly committed to a belief in equality of access to information.

The World Bank follows the World Wide Web Consortium's Priority 1 guidelines, and as we settle into this new site we will be working hard to exceed those guidelines and ensure the site is usable to the greatest number of people.

Production

The site was designed and written by the TDLC and was produced, and is hosted by, Segment Publishing.
