ample.html - html template for Ample

startup and used as a base for it's HTML pages. These pages are
rendered whenever a webbrowser connects and requests a list of
available songs and directories (typically done by connecting to
The file is divided into three sections, the header, the middle and the
footer. The header and the footer are the same on each page generated
while the "middle" is copied into the final HTML document once for each
file or directory that is going to be listed. Although this may sound
confusing, it will probably become much more evident once you look at
the example below.
Variables are written in uppercase and enclosed within "at" signs
(example: @NAME@) and are replaced dynamically when the page is
constructed. Some variables can exist anywhere in the document and
some can only exist in the "middle" section, see the information about
each variable for details.
