Bug Description

The block navigation, the html code is a table, when it should be an unordered list. The advantage of it being a list is that it will allow a user to apply skins to the navigation.

Attached is the file that needs to be modified in


Also, the CSS needs to be updated with something along the following lines, or else the default will be a bullet list.

nav ul{
    list-style: none;
nav ul li:before{
    content: "\00BB \0020";
    font-size: 12pt;
nav ul li h3 {
    display: inline;

This will also need to be looked at with the eye for accessibility. Added Jono so he can comment as well.

This looks good, having it as a list will make it a lot more accessible.
