The Ministry Portal, www.sanidad.gob.es, was created using HTML5 for content markup and CSS 3 style sheets for the visual design, avoiding wherever possible the use of proprietary technologies that require the use of specific equipment or browsers. These standards guarantee access to the information from any browsing device that supports W3C recommendations: HTML5, CSS 3.0, nivel AA.

The styles used have been constructed according to the recommendations of the W3C consortium for version 3 of the cascading style sheets and have been validated using the CSS code validation tool Will open in a new window provided by the consortium. No errors were detected during validation.

Furthermore, the HTML pointing to the various CSS files has been validated to ensure that the fault tree used is correct. The analysis was performed using the HTML code validation tool Will open in a new window provided by the consortium, with the analysis producing a positive result.

In the event that the user accesses the portal using a browser that does not support style sheets, the structural markup enables a correct display of all the content. When selecting the style-free option, the pages will be displayed without any form of visual formatting. The website is designed for responsive viewing, so it is optimally displayed on tablet and mobile devices.
