-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(homepage) sets the name of the home directory, leave empty if you do
   not want the home directory to show (DEFAULT = 'home')
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(symbol) set the separator between directories (DEFAULT = ' > ')
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(special) special directory formatting
   elmer = elmer fudd translation

  (DEFAULT = Keep underscores, no conversion
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(target) set the frameset target value (DEFAULT '_self')
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTORY OPTIONS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(dirformat) can be of type:
   ucwords = uppers case words (use with _toSpace)
   titlecase = upper case words except small words (the, is, with, etc)
   ucfirst = upper case first letter
   uppercase = all uppercase
   lowercase = all lowercase
   none = show directories as they are named in path structure (DEFAULT)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(imagedir) sets the image directory path, plus the image type. 
  (DEFAULT - Does not use images) You need to name your images the same
  as the actual directory names.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(changeName) Directory mapping/alias.  Alias your actual directory name
  to one of your choosing. For example if your actual directory
  structure is /temp/educ/science/bio/ you can map each directory name
  to /Temporary/Education/Science/Biology and display it as such.
  (DEFAULT = No aliasing, display the actual directory name)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(removeDirs) remove directories from the breadcrumb. So for example if
   your breadcrumb looked like this:
   home > classes > help > status > test.php

  webpage has not been specified in the url.  So for example many 
  webservers look for a page called index.htm, index.html, index.php,
  default.htm, default.html, default.php.  Or you can use this variable 
  to just look for files you specify and link the directory if they
  exist.
  (DEFAULT = Link directories regardless of whether or not the
  directory has an index or default file)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(hideFileExt) hides the file extension (DEFAULT = FALSE)
