Both devhelp, and yelp have good examples of how you could do this, or
you could use the solution provided by Peter Bloomfield.

The real solution, though, will be this:


This will allow you to implement what you need in a much saner fashion,
and will allow balsa/devhelp/yelp developers to also not need to go to
