uh-huh, especially since the user will in fact choose one of the 5 links
(presumably).  Visual display vs logical structure.

Links to "this", "that" or "the other" are, semantically, an unordered list;
it doesn't matter which order you approach them, only that they are equal in
importance.  I have an associate who has been playing with nested lists as
"dynamic menus", where hovering over a list item "reveals" the secondary
nested list, place and styled via CSS.
