I ran some tests on the page for the Montessori International College (Buderim,QLD,4556) and found:
- 140 HTML Markup errors
- The W3C Mobile test reported: This page is not mobile-friendly!
- An automated web accessibility test reported 6 Priority One, 37 Priority Two and 86 Priority Three problems.
- document: 139.1KB (HTML, text and scripts),
- stylesheets: 26.4KB,
- images: 16.3KB.
The code shows an excessive use of nested DIVs. At one point DIVs are nested ten deep, to display just two images. The large amount of white space which this deep nesting causes may also slow the system down, depending on how the pages and generated and transmitted.
Also automatically generated identifier names appear to be excessively long, such as: id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_SchoolProfileUserControl_SchoolDescriptionLabel".
In other respects the page is reasonably well designed . It is readable (perhaps more readable) with the styles turned off. However, it is not clear if the general public will be able to understand the complex tables displayed. It might be better to offer an introductory page for each school with summary data. This would also be a way to reduce the load on the server. Most readers will not read past the first few lines of text and therefore downloading the complex tables is a waste of resources.
Do you know what web company won the tender to build this site?
