Josh, it continued after that.  I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, when 
I dump $fields, and I end up spending an hour or three experimenting 
until I end up with 
It takes me sooo long (even with formatted print_r's) to get to the 
value I need in that massive structure, same with $node.

Nancy, thanks for the idea. I'm ignorant as to whether that would 
work...I'll do some reading for my next encounter. The part that makes 
me uncertain is that the product has many fields that don't apply to 
this 'catalog' view. The owner has standard products that will go 
through checkout, so that have product description, price, etc.  The 
other half or more of the products are affiliate products, where none of 
that information is needed, because an iframe from the supplier provides 
a photo, price and link to the product detail page. So I needed a 
mechanism for an argument, selecting fields, and rewriting the output of 
the product id as an iframe.
