Summary of Issue: Update on my earlier post - G1: Adding a link at the top of each page that goes directly to the main content area
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
I think the verbiage with the word "Must" would be incorrect in my previous post.

Sorry about that...

thanks,
Devarshi

Proposed Change:
please note the updated text (changes highlighted in UPPERCASE):

*********************
The objective of this technique is to provide a mechanism to bypass REPETITIVE NAVIGATION MENUS AND OTHER PAGE ELEMENTS on multiple Web pages by skipping directly to the main content of the Web page. The first interactive item in the Web page is a VISIBLE link to the beginning of the main content. Activating THIS link sets focus INTO ONE OF THE PAGE ELEMENTS IN THE main content AREA. This technique is most useful when a Web page has one main content area, rather than a set of content areas that are equally important. 

Note: Visible links are IMPORTANT for USERS navigating with a keyboard including switch users, those using techniques that generate keyboard strokes slowly, screen magnification software users, screen reader users working with sighted colleagues, keyboard only users and those navigating using voice recognition software.
