I appreciate this. I did not think of this. Of course one wants
{OtherPage$RatingXYZ} to work, for instance to devise page listings
according to ratings...

I think I would need to rewrite my main markup function, to split it
into two, so the page variable can get a result from one function,
but the major display output part is done by another.

Oh well, such is the joy of coding. The page variable was an
afterthought, always dangerous ;-)

Thanks for you reply!
