I'll be happy to echo something into the PageTop, will serve my needs for
Could you elaborate on what code i would need to put where to accomplish

I have tried various stuff including calling scripts from the PageTop
directly, but it will just echo whatever i put in there. I can only imagine
i need to put a var in there, but how do i get it to be read by the host

Thanks for your input,
