Aah, I am starting to see the light !

One, hopefully final, question: Is it the {{:DEFAULT}} that induces the 
contents of pages/index.html into include/layout/leftright, or which 
other mechanism tells IC where to put the page contents ?

If I understand right, the final [output name=""] from LEFTRIGHT_TOP 
makes the  page contents into the default area ?

Thank you all for your help,
