Front Page, entry point? This is a hypertext enviroment, they are no such
things, and ther shouldn't be, you can't provide that, because you cannot
provide a mechanism to force how the user arrives.  If you have distinct
urls for different representations of the same content, then every url
_must_ have a reference to every other representation.
