Technical information

The KI website has been built in accordance with web standards. This means that HTML 5 has been used to structure its contents, and that style templates (CSS, cascading style sheets) have been used to govern how the content is presented. The publication system used is an open source system called Drupal 7.

Web browser

The website is best viewed in newer browsers that support the above-mentioned standards. Older versions do not fully support these web standards. They will display the same contents, but with certain discrepancies in the layout.

ki.se has been adapted to be viewed equally well on a regular computer as on a mobile phone or tablet. As long as you have a newer browser, the website should function.

More information about the various browsers is available on their respective publisher's website.
