Breadcrumbs Question


From: Janette Shew

What's the best way to handle long breadcrumbs that incorporate

- The content page primarily contains tabbed content;
- Non-linkable navigation categories (these have submenu items but the
category itself is not a page

1) Should the active tab name be included in the breadcrumb (non-linked)?
(an example:

2) NNG recommends that the non-linkable navigation category be
excluded from the breadcrumb; this seems good from an accessibility
standpoint. Does anyone disagree? (an example:
- Notice that the active-styled "Find Courses" is a category, and within it
you go to Courses then further in to get to this page. )

Thanks in advance!
