What is the syntax your developer is using?

I have found that the following syntax (with tabindex="-1") works the
best:

<a href="#main">Skip to main</a>
...
<a name="main" id="main" tabindex="-1">

Do skip links work in Chrome? I have one of our developers saying that he
can't get skip links to work correctly within Chrome. If you click the
skip link, it appears to move focus to the internal anchor on the page,
but if you tab then it acts as though the keyboard focus is still on the
skip link at the top of the page.

Thanks!
