Rules Rule Text How We Comply
(c)* Web pages shall be designed so that all information conveyed with color is also available without color, for example from context or markup. The igLayoutManager control does not depend on color.
(j) Pages shall be designed to avoid causing the screen to flicker with a frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz. The igLayoutManager control does not itself contribute to causing the screen to flicker with a frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz. (There are no BLINK or MARQUEE elements as part of the control.)
