Copy of the reply I just sent to the other thread! :-)

Thank you for that.

One problem though, is that while it talks about what you need to have on
the page, there's no mention of a template or similar to complete to say

We've got instructions for a Proposal
which has had a lot of work done over the last week or two - thanks
everybody! - but is there anything similar for a simple "key / tag / value"
