As it turns out, I need to insert my new stuff right in the middle of =
the searchform template, so I have my answer.

Subject: [Slashcode-development] Suggestions for "topic description"
We want to have an option "descriptive paragraph" (arbitrary html) for =
each topic, so that new users to our site will know what the different =
topics are intended to cover. The topics.pl page is probably the user's =
first introduction to the set of all topics, so I figure the target of =
the links from that page (search.pl) would be a good place to start, =
with additional places identified later.
So, my idea is to create a new template that takes the current topic id =
as input and "somehow" fetches and displays the description text. (My =
first implementation of this template will probably be a big switch, =
with topic text hard-coded right there. That logic can be factored out =
Anyway, it seems like I have two choices for how to get this new =
template called on the search.pl page: add a call to the new template in =
an existing template that search.pl already loads, or add a new call =
directly in search.pl.
How would you guys decide which way to go?
