Good point.  I added a Using Templates page to Help.  For now...<g> users 
of HEAD _should_ be reading list posts, change logs, etc... I like your 
idea.  I can write a routine to throw a Boolean variable on the screen and 
manipulate the type_name string accordingly...  I'll look at that...  I'm 
really tired, so I may just get this to you as is and add that later.

I'd rather spend my available time this evening merging my changes into 
latest CVS before I diff, then make improvements later...
