"Skip to content" link changes visual focus, but not input focus #136

The problem is that when someone clicks a skip link, the viewport is scrolled to the #content, but pressing tab will bring focus to the site's main navigation. The expected behavior would be to select the first link in the #content, not the site's main navigation. Of course this is the browser's default behavior, and not really a _s bug, but it is an opportunity to make _s-based themes more accessible to users that navigate solely through keyboard input.

I learned about this issue via an article written by Nicholas C. Zakas. He suggests setting focus to the #content using JavaScript. I've adapted his example to use jQuery and to better conform to WordPress coding standards.

@aaronjorbin Thanks for taking a look at this.

The javascript seems to work pretty well. I ran some tests and it appears that its inclusion is presently blocked by #148. We should revisit after that issue is resolved.

Closing this because it was fixed when #139 was merged.
