About this site

The Romantic Novelists’ Association website has been designed to ensure its content is as accessible to as many browsing devices as possible.

Compliance with W3C guidelines

The site has been designed to ensure at least Level One compliance with World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) accessibility guidelines.


Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used to format the content of the site for display on computer monitors, and to ensure that background images and colours intended only for screen display do not appear when pages are printed. The CSS code used is compatible with all modern browsers, including:

  • Internet Explorer for Windows (versions 7 and above)
  • Firefox (all versions)
  • Opera (versions 7 and above)
  • Mozilla (all versions)
  • Netscape Navigator (versions 7 and above)
  • Safari (all versions)
  • Camino (all versions)
  • Google Chrome

Partial CSS support is also provided for Internet Explorer 6. If you are using this version we recommend you upgrade to a more recent browser, if you are able: Internet Explorer 6 is no longer supported by Microsoft, is unable to render web standards-compliant HTML and CSS code properly, and is vulnerable to online viruses. The Browse Happy website will show you how to upgrade your browser to a recommended alternative.

Although the site will display differently on older browsers, its content is accessible to all browsers.

It's a fact

When David Szelnick bought the rights to Margaret Mitchell’s 'Gone With the Wind', only six months after its 1936 publication, the whole world cast Clark Gable as Rhett Butler before the ink was dry on the contract.
