The way things are right now, yes, you do have to make a permanent
change to a rev IDE stack in order to do this before the html page is
created - it's not like changing an object template. The script that
creates the web page from the custom property is protected, for
obvious reasons. While it would certainly be possible to write a
script that saves the custom prop, replaces it with a different one,
invokes the standalone builder, and restores the original prop I don't
see that this gives any advantage over modifying the html page after
creation. And has the distinct possibility of screwing up the original
to the point where revlet web pages can no longer be created. It's a
tech support issue I wouldn't want on my plate.
