I'm not sure who maintains this site but I find it difficult to read or navigate.

For a group that is setting world wide standards this site is a poor example of a web site.

It doesn't offer the user much choice in navigation the large text is hard to read and makes the site look cluttered.

In this day and age websites should be flexible and allow the user and their settings to determine what they see. Just as a site should be accessible to a user with sight or other accessibility problems it should also be easy to use for all users. 

As I myself am a web developer I need to use this site for research but I don't like to use it because I find it hard to read and due to the set out I have to take extra time to find anything. 

I'm a visual person and I like sites to be set out in a clear easy to scan format which I don't find this site to be. Each time I visit the site it's only for a couple of minutes at a time as reading any longer gives me a headache due to the high contrast of the blue/black text on white. 

What is comfortable for one user may cause physical discomfort to another.
