Hi Hans,

I think this is a brilliant recipe - thanks so much for making/sharing it.

I don't know if this is something with my skin/css  (monoskin) or 
whatever but  I have:

{(extract 'Gsc' cut='Center' highlight=off  header=count lines=10 
Main.HomePage )}
{(extract 'page' snip='page' highlight=off  header=count lines=20 
Main.HomePage )}
{(extract 'web' snip='web highlight=off  header=count lines=20 
Main.HomePage )}

as 3 lines in an otherwise blank page.

In all cases the first "Results xx" appears on the far right of the 
page. Is there a way to control
where on the page this Results text appears?   I don't mind if it's hard 
on the left, but on the right
causes me some problems with building text around in to make a report.

Ideally I'd just like the XX number so I can build my own text around it.

Thanks again
