Try: <img src="/images/transparentgif.gif" alt="Skip to content - Access key
8" border="0">

As for reading the TITLE attribute, I beleive that JAWS 3.x actually
defaults to the Title attribute, for example:

Go to the <.a href="link.html" Title="Go to the next page">Next page</a>
will actually be read aloud as "Go to {the go to the next page}"

this has caused me some grief in the past :(

(I note you do not specify Height and Width attributes of your transparent
gif - is this deliberate?)
