A somewhat better option would be to download the TMG Helps page created by
DeAnna Burghart a few years ago. While it was designed for TMG v4x, it is
still applicable to TMG v5x although there are some variable used in V5x
that are not shown. This useful "cheat-sheet" can be handy in that it shows
all v4x variables on a single page. It is available in her original
MS/Word form and in PDF form for those who do not have MS/Word. Using
this, you can print it out and notate the additions for v5x.
The TMG Helps page is located on the User Hints, Tips, and Helps page of
the TMG Tips web site (URL below).
Hope this helps -
