JAWS vs @import and <link> stylesheets (Was: Rethinking "Skip to Content")

OK, well maybe I am wrong here although I never (and I think I can use this
absolute in this case) use @imported styles: all of my tests were done using
ed stylesheets and that may account for the differences you and I have
seen. I was under the impression that display:none was "invisible" to JAWS
but maybe only with ed styles. I have not reinstalled JAWS since my
system was re-imaged but I was testing the most recent version of a couple
of months ago.

More testing I suspect.

Veering slightly off at a tangent, but just wondering:
is that a new feature of JAWS? I have 4.02 (admittedly quite old),
and it sticks religiously to code order (and also, surprisingly,
reads out elements that have been marked as display:none in the
CSS - albeit my stylesheets are @imported, so that may explain why)
