I learn as I go.  It's good tat you can use css but suppose I decide I want 
to put it on tape. Never mind this road.  Anchors have been around longer 
than te wai and if judicious use of internal anchors is made, skip to 
anything is not needed.

  What looks funny in print? A "skip" link looks no more funny than,
  say, a "table of contents" or "footnotes" link.

  Besides, this -is- one use to which we can put printer CSS. We do
  exactly that; as well as remove underline from other links. It helps.

  Or did I miss something here? Is accessibility really about what does
  and does not look funny in print?
