Site maps

I am probably igniting another heated debate by posting this question. Oh
well. Does anyone have guidelines are designing a site map?

I am auditing a site, which, personally, is lacking structure and
organization. I am recommending that, when a redesign is being considered,
the site map [http://www.s4dac.org/site.html] be redone first to provide the
necessary structure. From there pages can be moved or deleted.

I envision a site map as an outline, composed of nested lists, showing the
hierarchy of pages. I understand there's also the alphabetizedl and
categorized approaches. I am interested in hearing others' comments, so
that I can prepare myself in case I'm the one doing the redesign.
