(Nice to see that other people think while I sleep)
In my mind, the underlying principle being discussed is to reveal the *=
context* of a stop on a trail. This has a horizontal dimension (Previous | =
Next) and a vertical dimension TopPage ... ParentPage ThisPage (and =
possibly FirstChild | LastChild). It makes sense to render both =
horizontally in breadcrumb style, in which case (as noted in earlier =
comments) the visitor needs cues to the dimensions.
I suggest (I'm sure it can be improved):
TopPage ^ ... ^ ParentPage ^ ThisPage
< PreviousPage | FirstChild | LastChild | NextPage >
In the simple case of a pure trail (as opposed to an outline), it produces =
2 lines (clarity versus brevity):
TrailPage ^ ThisPage
< PreviousPage | NextPage >
