I'm braindead and can't think of much more to write other than Bingo! ...but, IMHO, massively redundant navigation is the absolute key to controlling where your visitors go. I have pages with nav on the top, the bottom, the left, and mixed in among the content. I also use different formats on the same page, some having (for the same target) text menus, click maps, tiles, and banners --I'm working now to add skyscrapers. Yes, haute design is going to suffer. However, besides responding to it, JohnQ seems to love it. I frequently get comments re: I can always find what I'm looking for on your site.
