            Bug ID: 23281
           Summary: Bread-crumb navigation should not use <ol>; example
                    should be fixed
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org
          Reporter: jukka.k.korpela@kolumbus.fi
        QA Contact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

The recommendation "Authors are encouraged to markup bread-crumb navigation as
an ordered list using the ol and li elements" should be removed, and the
example should be changed back to what it is in HTML5 CR (possibly with “>”
replaced by the more logical “→”).

There is no reason to make the links in a bread-crumb items in a numbered list
(which is what <ol> really is, no matter what the specs might say). Markup that
causes unacceptable default rendering should not be recommended, especially
when there are simple alternatives that are in common use.

In the example, the attribute aria-label should either be removed or its value
replaced by an adequate text than "You are here". That text would describe the
part that contains the name of the current page, but not for the entire bread
crumb.
