Kathyrn, Dave, thanks,
a lot.

mmh... I'm not being clear. My mistake. Again:

I'm looking for something that I can point the href of my anchor tags 
to. I'm starting to daydream that this `something' is a variable defined 
in a PHP file in my skin. Maybe it's a variable, maybe it's something 
else, maybe it's not possible :-)

The relevant anchors of my skin look like:
<a href="{$ScriptUrl}/FindLastEditIn/MyGroup">
The contents of FindLastEditIn/MyGroup are in my previous mail.

I would like to change this to:
<a href="$Something">
where `$Something' is such that clicking this link takes the user to 
MyGroup's last edited page.

Dave: maybe I'm missing something in your suggestion, but I don't know 
if it's what I'm looking for. Some clarifications:

Main.AboutMyGroup is a page that is not necessarily related to the 
pagelist/search in question. There are no <a> elements in the 
Main.AboutMyGroup page. The <a></a> opening and closing tags go around, 
and are external to Main.AboutMyGroup. This page is simply a chunk of 
HTML caught inside of an <a> tag, like above:
<a href="$Something"><!--wiki:Main.AboutMyGroup--></a>

Again, thanks!
