Semantically correct breadcrumbs in CakePHP

with one comment

I’ve recently started a discussion on CakePHP Google groups about HtmlHelper::getCrumbs() output. Currently, it generates a string of separated (by the chosen separator) links. It is of course correct syntactically, but semantically it is totally wrong – navigation elements like menus and breadcrumbs should be built using (x)html lists as they are a list of elements. For such purpose, tags like ul and ol are made.
