It's obvious that I can code by hand via the admin interface -- and messing 
with the templates does not allow the per-client customizability I'd 
prefer, apart from doing a separate install for each client.  But since I 
have the multiple domain thing happening, I have no desire to go that route!

Hand-updating changes to the pages misses the whole point of being able to 
do includes -- one change impacts multiple pages.  If I could learn how to 
create list-specific<MM-variables> perhaps that would be another approach 
-- would they allow me to pass HTML to the browser?  Of course -- they do 
that for the public pages generated.  Thinking out loud here.  Okay -- it's 
something to play with.  I couldn't point a separate HTML file into the 
public pages, but perhaps could create one unique footer per client (per
