Goal

How to display a WorkCenter or Activity Guide without the Portal Header?  In other words, how to hide the portal header when displaying a WorkCenter/Activity Guide?

Normally for a regular component page, this can be accomplished by switching to using the PSC servlet in the URL, or by selecting 'No Template' in the Content Reference definition. But neither option seems to work for WorkCenters/Activity Guides.

When either option is used, the Workcenter URL displays just the right target frame, and the left navigation frame is missing.

It doesn't work with the iScript to load the Activity Guide either. For example, this URL works fine:
http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/psp/ps/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/s/WEBLIB_PTAL.ISCRIPT1.FieldFormula.IScript_PTAL_DASHBOARD?tab=SOMECUSTOMAG

But switching it to psc yields a page that shows just the Activity Guide header text and nothing else:
http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/psc/ps/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/s/WEBLIB_PTAL.ISCRIPT1.FieldFormula.IScript_PTAL_DASHBOARD?tab=SOMECUSTOMAG
