I agree and back to contant or back to navigation should be sufficient.
remember, we are dealing here with a small window where the content
might not be displayed.  It is a tough conundrum.

I don't entirely agree, if you have a link at the bottom of the page
saying "to the content" or "to the navigation" I am confused, I've just
read the content and now there's a link to some more content, or is it
the same content or what? similarly with the navigation, new navigation,
different navigation I think the link text here is important to the
issue, and no-one's suggested what that might be.
