true if the node that represents the current page is rendered as a hyperlink; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

The node that represents the currently displayed page is the SiteMap.CurrentNode. Its Title property specifies the text to display for the current node, and its Url property is used to create a hyperlink. By default, no hyperlink is rendered for the current page to prevent erroneous form posts.
