I've made the change. As expected, now I don't have the "> fop" portion  
of the breadcrumb (nor do I have anything of the other crumbs I'm  
hoping for). Since I'm not loading this from a web server, I guess I  
need to put the new site LIVE before it'll "appear"... (Or at the very  
least, I need to fire up the local WEB SERVER and stick it there so I  
can see the breadcrumb trail in action).

This still doesn't work for me. I do not see any "Whole Site..." links  
on any of my pages.

I'm thinking seriously about submitting a "[PATCH] breadcrumb.js file"  
so we can fix that ugly breadcrumb problem on the FOP site. That's been  
bugging us for far longer than even the messed up breadcrumb problem on  
the Forrest web site[1], although I notice that it's moved up in  
priority :-).
