In html5 you could use the following: -
<a title="First link additional text" href="#">Link 1</a>
<a title="Second link additional text" href="#">Link 2</a>
<a title="Third link additional text" href="#">Link 3</a>

:first-child pseudo class or a
class="last" on a link.
For HTML4 strict just substitute a
<div class="menu"> for
So, not as complicated as I once thought!
