I know nothing about style sheets.  My html is actually pretty 
horrible, since everything I've ever done is either static, or perl 
generated :)

How do I do this in a style sheet and have l2h include that style

Where do I define this new sub?  I actually have a chunk of perl code 
which does exactly what I want it to do, now I just need to know 
where to put it.

Does this imply the use of frames?  Personally, I hate frames and 
would rather not use them.  If if doesn't, great!

Ahh, okay, so where would this go?

Well, I coding perl to do my html for me is about the only way I know 
how to do html, so maybe l2h and I'll get along just fine! :)

Thanks a bunch!
