Hi again,

I would go along with Leahys suggestion as this will enable screen
readers to find it. 
 
Kind regards

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.

	I would suggest using the "hide" function in your CSS i.e. -->
	 
	html code = <div class="hide">
	<h1><a href="index.php#skip" title="Skip navigation - Tab three
more times if you need to access the style changer">Skip
Navigation</a></h1>
	</div>
	 
	 
	CSS =
	 
	.hide {
	 visibility:hidden;
	 font-size:0.1em;
	 height:13px;
	}
	 
	 
	Hope this helps,

	How can I include a table head without it actually showing up on
screen?
