> 4.  There may also be a menu-map option which brings up a page with
** a complete list of all the menus and their sub items etc in a hierarchy
** list in the same way as for the single menus.  This is like a site map,
** but is just a map of the menu functionality.

As for site maps, it is very important that the styling is straightforward
and there is no attempt to summarise.  When I go to a site map, which
is not that uncommon on commercial sites, it is because I am finding the
designed navigation system totally confusing in trying to find information
that ought to there, i.e. the design has failed to do its job.  Some sites
have selective site maps that only tell about what the designer thought
important; then is the time to give up.

 ** = Arbitrary wrap in very long line.
