  Sample input:
The Output is html which informs the WebViewer Object
  Sample output:
[relevant html string]

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Setup some global fields in your configuration area for each of the parameters and whenever you use a webviewer insert the cf with the parameters calling the relevant values. What you would have originally have inserted as the WO controlling string is now inserted as the Text parameter.

Thus, for example, if you want to use the WO to display

[Record x of y ] on a layout

insert "Record " & Get(RecordNumber) & " of " & Get(FoundCount) as the Text parameter and play with the other parameters in your configuration area 'til it looks right.
