An aside; it is considered good accessibility practice to have the 
content FIRST, because then users of screen readers do not have to 
listen to all the navigation before every page. If nav must appear 
before content in the source, use 'skip nav' links to allow them to 
avoid this. There was a long thread on CSS-discuss about this 
When I use a PDA I prefer the content first, especially on real 
content (rather than 'home') pages - all that scrolling!
