This component is not visible unless focused, and is intended mainly for screen reader users to bypass repetitive web page content to quickly get to critical information.


This component can contain any number of links, which have an href attribute set to the ID of the HTML element they point to. In addition, each link has a tabindex attribute set, the first with a tabindex of 1 and following links incrementing up by 1 from this; This ensures that these links are the first set of focusable elements on the page despite where it is included.


This component is to be the first within the body of every page.
