For this to work, "<RRD::TIME::NOW %c>" will have to be parsed
and processed by the rrdtool cgi program.  Perhaps you are not
running it?  Another reason might be that somehow rrdcgi is not
recognizing the string (hidden characters perhaps?)

I don't think Tobi recommended to use COMMENT if you want a TITLE.

Perhaps you can start with an existing example, make sure this works
and then adapt it to do what you want.

I ask you to respect any "Reply-To" and "Mail-Follow-Up" headers.  If
you reply to me off-list, you'd better tell me you're doing so.  If
you don't, and if I reply to the list, that's your problem, not mine.
