And how you find: [title="Put the focus in the content"] and [title=Put the
focus in the menu]. Maybe Focus is a too technical term, but it is that
really makes the link.

| We're not dealing with a small window at all, we're dealing with an HTML
| document...
| If it says back to content or back to navigation I would expect it to go
| to another page with content and/or navigation I wouldn't expect it to be
| within the same document, I don't see why, Also surely back is a
| problematical word as it implies you've been there before - which isn't
| guaranteed at all (even within the same document you could've arrived at
| the content portion missing the navigation.)
| I don't have any solutions to this unfortunately.
| In documents like the W3's recommendations, it's probably okay, you have
| _contents_ etc. which you can link to as _contents_ but using vague terms
| like "to navigation" and "to content" I find very confusing about where
| it's likely to take me.
