AssInfoEx differs from old AssInfo in that substituted tag must be referenced
(i.e ?STRING 1?) on a SuperGenie in v7, before being able to use AssInfoEx
(prev not the case).

I.e in v6.10 you can create a blank SuperGenie page, which has a function
AssInfo(10,0) in correspondence with calling the page via Ass(10,"myTag") will
return "MyTag" (without having ?STRING 10? anywhere on the SuperGenie.

in v7.0 the tagname is not returned unless the tag is used on the page
somewhere (i.e ?STRING 10?).



A new mode has been introduced to the AssInfoEx function to solve this problem.

If you use mode 19 AssInfoEx will return cluster.tagname even if the association is not resolved. (basically it returns whatever was passed into Ass)
