Thanks! I noticed that earlier, that was a good idea.

Good catch. I don't think the <a href="#skip"> have much interest any  
more indeed. One of the points of changing the location of the menu  
was to limit the volume of stuff (not only in the markup, visually  
too) before the actual content, so I guess it makes the #skip trick  
moot.

Any objection to removing them?
