I have attached a new stylesheet and patch against stylesheets.scm to
add it to gnucash.

"My Company" has no options other than to display it or not display it. 
When displayed, it shows up on the right hand side, across from the
customer's address and is right justified.  There is a bug in my
previous easy-invoice.scm that is fixed in the attached version (if
File/Properties values are blank, and My Company is selected, the page
errors out).

"ID-String" is simply text (it can be anything) that is displayed on the
right side of the page directly across from "Invoice #."  If left blank,
nothing is displayed, but our company uses the format:

<b><u>Tax ID: 00-0000000</u></b>

as the "ID-String" (incidentally, I was very pleased when I realized
that simple HTML formatting tags like <b>, <i> and others could be used
in Extra Notes and ID-String).  The above entry gives the same
formatting as "Invoice #," but the user can put whatever text he/she
wants there.  Since we use it for our Tax-ID, I just named it
"ID-String," but it certainly can be renamed to something even more
