Hypertext as commonly practiced leads to navigational detritus floating at the edges of the page. (This site is no exception.) Adhering to this practice has almost become de rigeur. Avoiding it would mean writing original navigational prose each time a node is updated.
Some would say that the effort of maintaining such non-linear navigation is not worth it. But for now, while still relying on traditional navigational detritus (and a honking big list), this site intends to write prose paths to each node. No matter how torturous the prose becomes.
