Maybe I misunderstood you. Did you mean "content links" or "content". If 
"content links", what does that mean?

I don't understand how this would be inaccessible to someone with a 
mobility impairment. If they cannot use a mouse or a keyboard, I assume 
they'll have /some/ device to "Skip to the Next Link" (like [TAB]) and 
"Activate Current Link" (like [ENTER]). Even someone with only a breath 
control device has this much functionality, right?
