I REALLY like this.  Using Javascript is a kludge of course and you can't
have any writespace in your string before document.write()'ing it out.
Allowing client side html inclusion duplicates some functionality of frames
but works better because this way it becomes inline with the rest of the
html.  Beautiful.
