I was wondering if there was already pre-determined mark up for

not <h1>content ~headers</h1> but

<search>navigation</search> and

<trail>breadcrumb trail</trail> or

<kill>banner ad</kill>

and possibly others, as this would not be as broad as XML, but would 
allow users to define how large they liked their navigation in 
proportion to content say...

and even a possible "standard".

sorry to digress but what is the issue with <a> tags?
