But the $TITLE isn't defined here.  It's easy enough to get $TITLE 
into my custom nav panel, the problem is that I want to then remove 
$TITLE from immediately below the nav panel which doesn't seem to be 
defined in .l2h-init.

I'm trapsing through the l2h code now, man is that ugly looking code.
And no comments!  Arrrrrrgh!  Why doesn't anyone comment their code anymore? :(

Okay, how do unset $TITLE?  There's a test in latex2html which does:

	if (defined $TITLE && !length($TITLE)) {
 	   die "Error: Empty title (-title).\n";

which basically makes it impossible to unset that variable.  Why 
would you force someone to have a title on their doc?  This test 
doesn't seem to make sense to me, since what I want to do is exactly 
what this test prevents!

Is there a "place title" sub somewhere I'm not finding that I can 
redefine in my init-file?
