Well, the world would be a boring place if we all agreed with each
other<g>.

I wrote an article on breadcrumbs for the latest issue of interactions
(the one on Funology!). It's called _Breadcrumb navigation: there's more
to hansel and gretel than meets the eye_. It isn't available on my web
site yet, but subscribers to the ACM Digital Library can find it here:
http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1015530.1015573

In it I suggest that there are numerous advantages to breadcrumb
navigation, especially when we consider that many users enter web sites
through search engines. I think it would be a bad plan to abandon them
just because they might run to two lines. (You could have a similar
policy regarding newspaper headlines, but it certainly would make your
life difficult!)

Regards,

William
