I've always used zero for home. :/
The site I've just built for has:
0 for home
1 - 5 for content/sections
6 - 7 reserved for two new content sections I know we're going to be adding
in the next two-four months
8 - 9 for "features" (search input box and "skip to content")

Yeah, it didn't make much sense... what I meant to ask was this: does it
read out the access key attribute when it reads the link the way it would
read out the alt tag on an image. i.e. when it gets to:
<a href="bla.html" title="Blah" accesskey="0"> does it say "link Blah
access key assignment 0." My guess is that it does NOT read out the access
key assignment on a link.

Interesting solution...I think I like it. But how would search engines deal
with it? Would they index it? Would it show up in the excerpt in the search
