      Bingo!  When I did that the changes I made to 
/usr/local/mailman/templates/en/article.html showed up on all of the 
archived posts.  HOWEVER, when I send a new post the changes are NOT 
there!  How does that work?

      I did see a reference to article.html' there, but the code was over 
my head.  I saw this comment at the top of HyperArch.py:

       - Should be able to force all HTML to be regenerated next time the
         archive is run, in case a template is changed.

      I thought this indicates that template changes are not 
incorporated.  So I thought the template was being written into the code of 
HyperArch.py when the list was created - but I created a new list and the 
changes to the template did not show on posts to that list's archives.

      I am at a loss as to when, where and how the template is incorporated.

     Perhaps there is a better way of doing what I want?  I'd like to be 
able to insert html into every archive post view - preferably on a list by 
list basis.  Any suggestions on how to do that will be greatly appreciated!
