Thanks for everybodies help with the multiple plots. I guess I was the
only one who hadn't figured out how to use the DisplayFunction yet.

I have a gripe and a question.

First, the Gripe:  There is no Front End documentation.  

The question comes from the gripe:

In the File:Print Options:Headers and Footers, there are a couple
expressions put there by default which cause the filename and page
number to print out as a header.  The expressions use the undocumented
commands ValueBox, CounterBox, OptionValueBox and TextData.  The on-line
help says that headers and footers are usually Cell expressions, but
when I copy the header expression and paste it into a cell, it displays
either itself as text or nothing if interpreted, so it is not a "normal"
cell expression.

#1- Does anyone know where I can find documentation on the syntax of
these commands?  Perhaps a Wolfram employee can respond.  

#2- Where can I find the proper syntax to add things like time, date,
revision number, a text message, small graphic, author, full pathname of
file etc.?  How can I make these items right, left or center justified. 
How could I change the font or text color?
