What is the PayPal "Three Token System" for the "signature" setting for
paypalexpress? It seems there is a contradiction in the PayPalExpress

One line reads:
Log onto your PayPal Business (not Personal) account and go to "Profile" -> "API access" -> "Request API Credential" -> "Signature".  This will generate a user ID, a password and a signature for you to use.

Then after that is says:
signature      xxx  (Required.  Use the three-token system - not the certificate system at PayPal)

Also, it says to:
"Create a page called "ord/paypalsetrequest.html", with the following content, and make it the target of any "PayPal" buttons or links."

[value name="pprequest" set="" hide=1]
[charge route="paypalexpress" pprequest="setrequest"]

[if scratch token]
    [bounce href="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_express-checkout&token=[scratch token]"]
    [bounce href="[area href=ord/checkout secure=1]"] 

The problem here is that "token" is never set.  Where does the scratch
variable "token" get set? And what should it's value be?
