Okay, I've done that too. There was no place to edit the content of the
header. Now I've gone back and forth so many times exploring that I have
forgotten some of the things I've tried.
When you mentioned it above I did not remember that I had tried that
until I went and did it again. And lo and behold, it was there 'heading'
which contained the displayed contents. Yay!!!
So I went back and opened up the a default latest squeak-web image which
is what I've been using, (but I just recently updated everything from
the repository on the image I'm working with).
Went to Navigation -> Environment - Header, Settings, and there is no
'heading' to edit. That explains my previous experience.
I then went to your repository and updated the Pier version to the
latest Pier-Seaside and then tried it again and 'heading' was there.
Somewhere along the way you made changes which enabled/fixed this, that
haven't made it to the squeak-web Pier version.

Yes, I could see the %k when I inspected the object via the halos. But I
couldn't see how I could edit it. I'm not really sure what you can do
there with the doit and inspectit buttons.

Thank you for this information and for providing this in whatever update
you put it in.
Thanks for all the work you put into Pier. I am so ready to see it
fulfill its potential.
I think it could deliver the best out of box end user experience
available. It could be a totally awesome way for an end user to do some
interesting things. Hopefully, as a fumble around I can learn enough to
help with some docs on this.
