In guideline 2.4 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2
it is recommended to add a visual skip link to jump to the different
sections of a document.
As Anne van Kesteren writes about in his post named 'Skip links should
be a markup problem', these aids shouldn't be visual.
In one of the comments in that post, it was proposed to use the LINK
element with a REL attribute which relates to the different sections of
I would therefore propose that these link-types should be recommended in
the Web Applications 1.0 WD:
NAVIGATION Relates to the main site-navigation
CONTENT Relates to the head of content
ADDITIONAL Relates to an additional section, e.g.
DISCLAIMER Relates to the copyright-notice/legal
agreements in the document
