I know we've had the discussion about why we should not make things
disappear by having the same background and foreground colours, but what
about using CSS {display:none} to 'hide' things like 'skip navigation'
and 'D' links? 

Is this an acceptable way of adding accessibility features to a page
without creating ugly distractions for sighted visitors?
