This has reference to the post at
and the two links given as examples for issues with
screen magnification software namely:
1. http://www.netflix.com/BrowseSelection?lnkctr=nmhbs
2. http://www.si.edu/imax/shows.htm

I believe the problem is more basic than that noted

The target links reveal text only when one mouses over

just with a keyboard interface. It is also
inaccessible to users of screen reading software.
So if this problem is fixed  on the website, I imagine
the issue for screen magnification software too will
