Breadcrumbs

The first or second line of each page should point back to the "parent" pages (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hansel_and_Gretel )

For example, the page SRE-transfer-reporting starts with

or a sample for RLU pages


Click on [edit] to see the code for those sample breadcrumb entries. Between double square brackets put the part of the URL after "h++ps://wiki.popdata.bc.ca/popdata/" . It that's too ugly, you can put after the link a bar (|) and a description. The [Systems] bit incidentally identifies the Unit.

Sections

A line bracketed by equal signs (=) will be emphasized, and appear in Table of Contents (if there are at least 4 entries).
