Improves system workflow email templates logic regarding billing name and
credit card.
The Billing Name and Address and Credit Card Information sections are now
included when the billing name and credit card type fields are available,
respectively. This replaces template-based logic regarding the payment
method, amount, waitlist status, and more with the logic used when collecting
and processing this information.

{contact.display_name}.
This ensures all standard workflow message templates use the contact's email
greeting. Before this change some standard workflow message templates used a
hard-coded "Dear" followed by the display name.

Removes the print icon from the upper left hand corner of all pages because

This removes the print icon from the upper left hand corner of all pages. The
