Sorry, I don't have a citation to help you cite a breadcrumb trail. Usually I
prefer to place the permalink url in the citation when I have a drill down, with
an "as published on" type citation. Something like the citation below.
Sometimes, website creators know the html, or the frontpage, etc. needed to
create the page, but forget the user navigation. The page below can most easily
be found either with the permalink, trying to find it from the main page takes a
cumbersome four "drill downs." I use a breadcrumb trail within a text, when
providing instructions of how to access a site, etc.
