Janet,

Sorry for the delay. You might would like to have a look at a tutorial I
wrote and published about your question on my web site a couple days ago:
http://www.webnauts.net/skip-navigation.html

I know an issue is missing, which I will add soon, that we better use "Skip
to main content" instead of  for example "Skip Navigation" or something like
that.
More about that read here the 10th Guideline.

My kindest regards,

John
