Hi all,

It's better not to do the visibility: hidden/display:none as screen readers
do not read this text with these styles.
Better to use something like:

.removed {
    left:-900000px !important; /* accessible display:none - read by
screenreaders */
    position:absolute !important;
    width:100px !important;
}

...and position off to the left of the visible screen.

Cheers.
