Is anyone aware of a markup language which allows the 
description of a website, particularly its navigational 

I'm involved in rapidly prototyping an website, and it 
occured to me that having a document which describes 
the site structure (essentially a site map) would be 
a useful starting point.

XSLT could then be used to generate a plain HTML version 
of the site to 'visualise' the desired structure.

I'm not interested in capturing the content of the page, 
other than perhaps a description of its function. At the 
moment my focus is on navigational structure which I think 
is an important foundation.

I'd be interested to see what work others have done in 
this area before I jump in myself.
