That worked like a charm.  Thanks, Ross.  

I used this suggestion to renew the \maketitle command and wrapped my
document's title in a DIV with a predictable, constant ID; I now have
a very useful hook to apply styles to :-)

With one document down and about 15 to go, I decided it was time for a
custom document class (fancy).  With much hacken and some help from
the nice folks on #latex, I got it working (with LaTeX at least):

\ProvidesClass{tutorial}[2005/07/30 v.0.1 PSU CS Tutorial class]

\let\orig at maketitle\maketitle

    \orig at maketitle

(Isn't that the coolest!? I think so at least, so I had to show it off a bit.)

To my dismay, however, when I compiled my document with l2h, I got a
warning that it couldn't find `tutorial.perl'.  I read about this a
bit in "The LaTeX Web Companion", so I had an idea of what I needed to
do.  I copied `article.perl' to my tutorials working directory and
renamed it `tutorial.perl'.  The warning went away, but the my
`\maketitle' hack still isn't applied.  I think I need a
`do_tutorial_maketitle' or `do_cmd_thetitle' function or something in
my `tutorial.perl' file.  I'm not sure though.

I'll bet the answer is in the manual, and I've just overlooked it.  If
someone could point me in the right direction and help me get unstuck,
I would really appreciate it.
