The original bug reports ("Up:" link to self at the beginning, and
empty "Next:" that unbalances the header at the end) should be fixed
by now, please confirm.

I think the template is an excellent solution; as you will probably

Not that José Ramón's suggestion doesn't have merits, of course; but
one must ponder the benefits against the costs. In this case it looks
too complex when a template is probably a better solution anyway.
