thanks for the reply
a couple of years ago we were using a bunch of includes on instances like this, but it landed us in a small bit of trouble when then author started wanting more and more cross-linked lower level pages. we axed that headached with DW.
i vaguley remember FP coming with somehting similar, but i'm in hopes of being able to lock them out while using FP with tags that are compliant within DW.
my plan is to have them on DW by mid July.
