Description: This code will produce a useful navigation resource, showing visitors where they are in your site. This form of navigation is recommended by Jakob Nielson, and it really does make navigation less confusing.

Has been tested on PHP4 – not sure if it’ll work on PHP3, as I only wrote the code when my old PHP3 version stopped working when the server was upgraded.
