Subject: Re: Save and restore titles and footnotes.
Silly me, I didn't take enough time reading your post. Indeed, proc
goptions does a better job than I expected in displaying re-usable
title/footnote information. I had thought there would be more problems along
the line of those Richard pointed out.
I see that GOPTIONS writes to the log. If SAS changed it to write to an
output destination, it would be great to be able to use ODS to capture this
information in a dataset, which would avoid the need to muck about with proc
