Sounds like a perfect job for AJAX to me. Just call your content from
external from external pages!?

Yes, but this suffers the same problem as the height:0 recommendation
- the off-screen content is still read by screen readers and navigated
by the keyboard before it is expanded. So, it is really only hidden
visually. I want a solution that truly toggles the content existence
to AT rather than just toggles its visual display.
