perhaps someone can help me to find a way to link to an element sibling regardless of where I am.

I want to display multiple pages on one webpage - navigating with a javascript scroller, like

Using the navigation, everything works fine but building the pager within those child elements seems to be complicated.

<% control Children %>
<div class="section">
		<li class="sub" id="$URLSegment">
			<h1>$URLSegment - Headline</h1>
                       <%-- PREV SIBLING NEXT --%>	
<% end_control %>

Any Idea?

Thanks much in advance

Totally untested or reasearched idea, but why not try getChildrenAsUL(), partialTreeAsUL() or SiteTreeAsUL() to get you the UL straigh away?
