I stand corrected, and thanks for bringing the fact that there are more than
one "login" screens to my attention. I will be making my edits to the

(pverify_web.html), which is the file you need to edit. (FWIW, if you view
the source code of a page and do a find in page for "this is", you should
see an HTML comment that tells you what file is being used to generate the
