Well the way I see it is that there just is no appropriate markup for
breadcrumbs. I actually like to hear Ian’s thoughts about <nav> here
but other than that, <div id=breadcrumb> seems indeed acceptable to me
(acceptable, not: great).

There’s actually something nice about this too I find in that we’d
keep it simple.

(Again, just the way I see it. I deem lists out of the question but
I’m otherwise quite open here as this is a recurring, important topic.
It would be great to identify a standard solution in this forum.)
