    EXCELLENT post Webnauts. I've bookmarked that. I call them "bread crumbs" and not "cookie crumbs", though. Usability is like Mike n Ike candy, you can never have too much.

    .......

    What?.....stop lookin at me like that...I'll get a complex.

    Funny that they don't have breadcrumbs on that particular site though.

    I read that using bold text for emphasis has the opposite result when read by people with dyslexia.

    I absolutely agree with you. I also don't think that there web site is usable enough. But they just collected all tips at the Forum High Ranking.com, intending to write a kind of article. [img]images/smilies/yawnb.gif[/img]

    I also call them "bread crumbs". But what is the difference if we would call them "cookie crumbs" instead? Crumbs are crumbs!

    That would be in conflict with rule 93...

    Is that a rule of SitePoint? Am I breaking a rule here?
    If so, should I delete my post?
