Taxonomic name: M-LINEAR-NAVIGATION
Beta v.1.1.1 - Updated 17/01/17.
This component provides simple inline secondary or tertiary navigation.
- The lists will automatically balance across the width of the section, but are set to keep whole links together so they do not break onto multiple columns.
- Default layout is four columns in a large view, collapsing to two columns at a medium view, and a single column at mobile, with the linear navigation becoming a show/hide.
- Built to work on light and dark accent colours.
Notes for testers
- Ensure that links can be accessed via the mouse as well as via tabbing using the keyboard
- Use a screen reader to confirm that the links are understandable as to where they will be going when listed out of context of the page

Additional text descriptive text can be hidden visually from the user to aid in make the link understandable especially if there area number of links such as "Find out more" on the page which go to different locations.
