Hi Greg

There is an entry in the Greenstone FAQ about adding new classifier
buttons - this includes the help texts. Please look at
http://www.greenstone.org/cgi-bin/library?e=p-en-faq-utfZz-8&a=p&p=faqbuild#32

Note that all the different macros must be put into the correct place in
each file so you need to look for others of the same kind to see where
to put them.

Hope this helps,
Katherine Don
