Re: skip navigation, anchor tags, and Netscape

We encountered an interesting problem when using skip navigation links and a
Netscape browser. If you tab through a page and select the skip nav link it
should take you to the main content (or where ever the anchor tag that you
are pointing to is located). IE manages to correctly use the skip nav, but
when you select the skip nav link in Netscape it takes you to the next
sequential link instead of the link following the designated anchor tag.
Our theory is that Netscape just does not support anchor tags correctly.
Has anyone had similar experience with skip nav or anchor tags?
