Breadcrumbs are an excellent navigation aid for websites. In one compact package, they both let me know where I am in relation to the whole site, and easily allow me to go up one or more levels to go somewhere else.

I used to use these when building web pages using Dreamweaver. It was just a matter of listing the path to get to the page from the homepage, and making each step into a link to the appropriate page. I also used a smaller font for the breadcrumbs.

I'm sure someone on the list can give the steps for doing this in RoboHelp.

Hello, all,

Does anyone know how to create breadcrumbs in
I read Steve Krug's book Dont Make me Think. In a
chapter he spoke of breadcrumbs, a kind of trail the
user takes to get to wherever he/she is in a web page,
e.g., Home-->special deals-->Deal of the week.
