OOPs, I'm bad. I hadn't thought of individuals using magnification devices.

The skip navigation on our page is not visible. I was following my parent's
organization look and feel required. And their site templates were such that
I made ours somewhat LOOK like theres but changed the coding.

Should the skip info be visible? What about access key info?

Another group of people who benefit from "Skip" links is screen magnifier
users.

When your viewport is a fraction of the screen, roughly the size of a credit
card, it is very useful to be able to have the focus (and viewport) snap to
the region of a page that you're interested in. It saves a lot of time
panning round for the required content.

On this basis I'd say that skip links should not only be available, but also
visible.

Aha, yes, now I get it. (Blame a disturbed night.... still half
