I'll go back and read Jims algebra.. sounds like an eminently logical way of 
keeping things in order. (o8

However, there are some problems with what you say.  If it's using 
/standard_html_header, then why did things change (not exactly for the 
better, but changed) when i started messing with 
/internal/standard_html_header ?

Well, yeh.  From reading the traceback, I thought the problem was in 
standard_html_header, too.  So, first I tried to establish WHICH.

Well, what still gets me is it complaining of  the wrong number of 
parameters... how can this be?

I think if we can work that out, we'll be a step closer to heaven.

Have a better one,
