All,

Just looking at how best to present "breadcrumbs" to users in the most
accessible format.  Obviously breadcrumbs have become a web standard over
time and there are a number of implementations - each with pros and cons.

My big question is whether we should be explicitly presenting the
relationship between a Parent and Child (Option A - using ul, li), or rather
implying a relationship (Option B - straight text with some separator).
Either way the breadcrumbs will be presented as:
Parent > Child

Option A:
<code>
    <span id="bread">
        <ul>
            <li><a href="#" title="Parent">Parent</a>
                <ul>
        		   <li>&gt; <a href="#" title="Child">Child</a></li>
	          </ul>
            </li>
        </ul>
    </span>
</code>


Option B:
<code>
    <span id="bread"><a href="#" title="Parent">Parent</a> &gt; <a href="#"
title="Child">Child</a>
</code>

I'd appreciate all opinions so as to make an informed decision.

Cheers,
Tim
