When I came up with this issue, I thought it's simply in file:// mode and that deplyoing a
'forrest site' with Apache web server would work fine. But then I realized that with 'forrest
run' the same happens: jetty does not deliver a welcome-page by default (it might be that
it is possible to configure it like this, see
I still not tried.
The breadcrumb is just a side-issue in this.

Adding "index.html" to jetty's welcome-file-list may not prove the "correct" way since it
is possible to define "indexfile" in tabs.xml, which then should be the right file to serve.
 I'm not sure what the behavior should be for (sub-)directories not used on tabs, though.
There might be no index.html. Serve the first file contained below in site.xml?

Environment: any

When creating a static html site (running command "forrest")
links in the document that point to a directory (index.html)
are broken when using the site without a server (file://)

To fix: add the filename to the links, i.e.
create <a href="../chapter1/index.html"> 
instead of <a href="../chapter1/">
