Re: Skip nav links on mobile

I love this group. Great discussion. This really helps clarify my
understanding. I agree, that bypassing blocks can be done a number of
ways. In this specific case a client had a skip link above the nav that
jumped to the main content and I felt it was just adding an extra step
with the nav collapsed on the mobile version.
