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

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

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