Clarification: A document entitled 'TemplateTop.cfm' is included in
the application file.

>>  OnRequestEnd
>>    -> TemplateBottom
>>       -> </body>

Ditto for 'TemplateBottom.cfm'

Very simply: I set '<body>' by default in my TemplateTop. But If I
want to add something to it, I  might do something like this

   <cf_BodyTag content="onLoad='myJavascript();'">

Where it would prepend the value of 'content' (or whatever variable
name I might choose) to the closing bracket in the tag to create this:

  <body onLoad='myJavascript();'>

The concept is identical to using cfhtmlhead, but instead of
appending between two head tags, we append within the body tag itself.


Our best destiny, as planetary cohabitants, is the development
of what has been called "species consciousness" - something over
and above nationalisms, blocs, religions, ethnicities.
