Bug Description

To meet current accessibility standards there needs to be a "Jump to Content" link to allow screen reader users to bypass navigation. The link should set focus to the start of the main content (the first <h1> or the content div)

Note that since our navigation is well-structured this is not necessary for WCAG Level A, so this should be a wishlist item.

Add "Skip to main content" link (Bug #1259741)

Added a hidden link to the beginning of all pages which becomes visible on
focus and allows keyboard users to bypass the navigation and move focus to
the main content of the page.
