Sub: Documenting additional technique for skipping
over links (SC2.4.1)
Technology: HTML / XHTML with CSS and Java scripting
Description of technique: 
Expandable / collapsable menu
Consider a list of image  links: Animals, Flowers,
Birds in a menu
There is an image (plus  and minus) or arrow marks
that convey if menu is expanded or collapsed next to
each of the above menu item. These may be assigned
null alt.
Using CSS and JS a menu item maybe expanded to reveal
a list of additional links in that group.. The alt for
the image should be set to
Animals ... menu item expanded   or 
Animals ... menu item collapsed
Flowers ... menu item expanded   or 
Flowers ... menu item collapsed
and so forth.
So by collapsing the menu item-links a user is able to
skip over groups of links. No other mechanism to skip
over the links may be needed.
