Hi Bill,

Thanks for your reply. As I indicated in an earlier message 
I've tried Dumper. I certainly get c.config values, but none of them are 
TT2 configuration settings. I'm using a view generated by the catalyst 
helper script.

As a result of a PEK answer, I'm going to use the [% DEFAULT %] 
directive in the root/lib/site/html file to address this particular 
issue. As noted earlier "... stash variables are accessible is because 
they are all that are provided to TT by default..." [1]
