We have a restaurant customer who does exactly what the demo does--from
their own browser they change their daily special on their web site. No HTML
coding needed, just upload a new "chunk" of text. The CGI inserts the text
on the fly.

My pages at internetyx.com all have 3 'chunks' (header, sidebar, footer) and
then the content.

Here's another FB CGI you can try out, I just finished converting it to FB^3
and debugging it:  http://cgi.internetyx.com/cgi-bin/tcounter/test.html
It's a graphical counter w/remote admin.

I think you could do it without a lick of java, probably not even any
javascript, mostly server-side CGI.
