I agree that it sounds like expected behaviour. Do you have any evidence that it's causing people difficulty?

Subject: [WebAIM] Skip to Main Content takes a user to a "blank line" above the h1 it's supposed to

Hi everyone,
I've come across a challenge that Google is not helping me fix. Pages occasionally have skip to main content links that, when activated, take a user to a seemingly blank line above the heading that I would consider to be the main content. It appears the target is a region rather than the heading itself or the article containing it. Does this make any sense to anyone? Have you seen this before? It happens most with NVDA using Firefox, IE and Chrome. It happens sometimes with JAWS as well, but JAWS at least continue to read down the page so it's less noticeable.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Sarah
