Depending on the nature of the script, if there's a lot of explanatory
HTML there to help humans read things, I've found it's easier to have all
that up front, and then list the few things I want to NCV-analyze down on
their own at the bottom.

At scale, you'd want to use the ncv_skipstart/skipend functionality that
was put in in 4.3.22, or list the NCV data at the start and everything
else below, but basically, don't be afraid to list the data components
twice if it gets too messy :)
