What is the best way to code an invisible Skip Nav link?

<a href="#content">
    <img src="spacer.gif" alt="Skip navigation." width="1" height="1"
border="0">
</A>

Does the <A> need a title with "Skip navigation." link too?


And while I'm here, does anyone know why many examples for accessible
links provide a space after a description? And around an "=" sign, e.g.

<a href="#content" accesskey="2" title="Skip Navigation. Access key = 2.
">
    Skip Navigation
</a>

Thanks
Steve
