Thanks to Jim, Ken and Brent.

I opted for Jim's suggestion and got hold of David Bayly's scripts (which 
look like a fantastic resource for those who are prepared to delve a little 
further into Frontier). I had a little problem getting the 
manilaExtras.breadcrumbs macro legal, but I now have working breadcrumbs - 

The next thing is to get the site structure right, which now appears to be 
where the real hard work is.
