Since this is a part of a larger article, I separated the examples into
DIVs. But you are right, the ID could just as easily been applied to the UL.
Actually, in the site I do for my real job, we have a breadcrumb trail on
the left, and our logo and contact email on the right, all in one horizontal
blue stripe across the top and/or bottom of the page. It is currently in a
table, but when we redesign it will go into a DIV, but the DIV will contain
more than just the breadcrumbing.

Heh. But gateway to what? XML?
It's true - there is just a dangerously short step from

The article is about 85% finished and covers a bunch more about lists. When
I'm done and it's up, I'll let the list know where to find it.

No problem. Glad you like it :)
