I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

what things do you need to implement to comply to the different conformance levels?
seems like all elements where possible need to have an alternative text alt="Image" which I know anyway.
I would like to know by looking at a webpage whether it conforms to A, AA or AAA.
I.e. if the page supports different font sizes then what level is this etc..?
