It's important to give users the ability to discover and navigate content when
authoring tools are used incorrectly. The hidden attribute is a good example.
Excerpt: "The **hidden **attribute must not be used to hide content that could
legitimately be shown in another presentation, for example..." On occasion it
will be, however, and full accessibility means the user needs some way to
override this in order to deal with incorrectly rendered pages.
