  • Skip to content (ALT + 0)

Targets of hyperlinks are indentified as follows:

  • All site internal hyperlinks open in the self window and are not explicitly titled.
  • All site external links open in a new window and are titled with "Externer Link in neuem Fenster:".
  • All hyperlinks to documents open in a new window and includes the document extension (PDF, DOC, ZIP, HTML, PPS and others) and size within the link title.
