ok, that's pretty sweet... and sounds structurally correct...
i have one minor nitpicky point though...
why are they stuffed into a <div>? a <ul> or <ol> is block level,
and can contain the id you use... none of your selectors rely on the
<div> being there, so why not dump the <div> altogether?
makes for more pure HTML, and you're not inserting tags just to hold
as i said on evolt.org's list, <div> is a gateway tag... ok, rudy
thinks it's witty...
btw, you gonna set this up as a tutorial anywhere? i have an ASP
tutorial for making breadcrumbs
(http://roselli.org/adrian/articles/breadcrumbs.asp) over at
evolt.org (the site is down for a couple days for a server move,
otherwise i'd offer that link instead of the one to my site), and
this would make a great follow-up to that...
i do plan on filching this...
