It is coming from a data factory (dataModel.xmap). If you want to hange
the list to divs, then the easiest is to implement your own navigation

Yeah, because this location is not enabled. If you really need to
implement your own implementation for the tabs (I think you do not need
this) then you can implement in your project locationmap  <map:transform
src="{lm:dataModel-html-tab-to-menu.xsl}"> and you do not need to change
anything in forrest.

...but that is IMO not needed because you are not trying to get another
navigation into forrest (like one that is not only based on tab/site but
maybe another component).

Yes, since what you are trying to archive, using divs instead a list,
you can just copy the corresponding contract into your project and
change <xsl:copy-of select="navigation/tab/ul[@id='nav-main']"/>
to <xsl:apply-templates select="navigation/tab/ul[@id='nav-main']"/>
and implement the needed transformation.
