```Apologies if this is a silly question. I am making a header using the
fancyhdr package, and I would like to automatically use the information
from \title, \author and \date. The short title used by the table of
contents would be especially helpful. But I haven't been able to figure
out what the commands would be ... does anyone know?

\title{My test document}

\author{E-Ching Ng}

\date{4 Dec 2009}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}

\pagestyle{fancy}
