I am very curious to hear your take on what the best order for content
is from an accessibility standpoint. Currently, I believe I try to use
the following order in my CSS based layouts.

Home link
Skip navigation link
Footer/Redundant Top Level Navigation

When you say "links" are you referring to externally linked files?
