Actually though looking jumbled, this might be another way to put in the
navigation skip without having to code in the skippable links. These
would be heard last, and then if the screen readers or browser readers
read this order the same way.... if there are links in the content or
side box areas would those be hit in the screen reader order with the
tabbing key?

I am curious and will tab work with layers and divisions. I just tested
a page in IE and seems to work well however, same page in opera or even
older nn may not work well on keyboard tabbing of links on pages with
layers or z index.

would having the links in the top most layer matter, or make the
difference... or do these links have to be coded in another way?

Seems they may get trapped in some deliveries.
