What about implementing it as an access key to top of content. This is
becoming a bit of a standard.  I've written up something about this here
http://www.aquariusclub.net/help (the Clagnut reference is good).

So, my suggestion would to implement 'S' as the 'skip navigation' access key
which would take the user to the top of the content.


PS I posted something to the list last week about problems with IE6 and
access keys - it related specifically to this Skip content one. If my
ramblings don't make sense and you want to do this, mail me if you like.

Subject: Top of page

Hi all,

A question about 'Top of page' links. I have come across some
inconsistencies in its use. Strange huh ?? ;) Some pages take you to the
very top of the page, prior to the navigation etc, but others only go to the
start of the content. I have always coded it to go to the very top of the
page but am now starting to wonder whether if it would be better to go to
the start of the content. What is everyone's thoughts ?? What is the
intended use ?? if there is one ?? or I guess more importantly, what does
the user expect to happen ??
