Couldn't you style such elements visible with :focus and :active?
Does popular assistive technology report accesskey on elements that
aren't rendered (display: none;) rather than merely hidden off-left
(position:absolute; left:-99999em;)? (It tends not to report elements
that are display: none; at all, note.)
And, either way, is there any reason why it should report the accesskey
but not the element?
