... using CSS positioning to position the content to be hidden out of
the viewable area - eg:

HTML:

<h1 id="testheader">Header we want to hide on screen</h1> 

CSS:

h1#testheader
{
position: absolute;
left: -420px;
width: 400px;
font-size: x-small;
}

[end clipping]

Should have read WCAG before posting - this is described as a technique
on the draft WCAG 2.0 HTML techniques doc at:
