<!-- HTML+styles+JavaScript for optional index floating Top button [2.0].  --> 
<!-- Formatting targets are replaced with user configs by Py build script. -->
<!-- All inline, to avoid extra requirements for custom HEADER.html files, -->
<!-- (though browsers allow <style> blocks in <body>, as does HTML 5.2+).  -->  
<!-- Top goes to page top only: use custom headers or edit this for other. -->

<!-- Clients using a custom FOOTER.html may also need something like this:
.finalelement {               /* add extra space above Top's bottom at end of page */
    margin-bottom: 80px;      /* else, text at end may be overlayed and unviewable */
}
<P class=finalelement>        <==on the last content line or item (or <div>+padding, <br>)
