Dear Sirs!

On your page: http://validator.w3.org/accesskeys.html I noticed that there might be a problem with your website accesskeys and keystrokes combinations.

To be specific, the accesskey and keystroke combination Alt+S is reserved by the IBM HPR for "Settings" and by JAWS Laptop Settings (Using IE 5.5/6) for "Changing Screen Echo", and you are using the above for skipping the navigation. See for more about here: http://www.wats.ca/resources/accesskeysandkeystrokes/38

I thought this info could be interesting for you.

Best regards,
