Show custom content using 1column.phtml

I need to create an external page from magento, just with success message.

So, I’m trying use this code:

$layout Mage::getSingleton('core/layout');
$page $layout->createBlock('page/html_header');

Shows only html, not “renderized” page (with menus and search bar).

After looking in some source codes, I found this:

$block $this->getLayout()->createBlock('core/template')
$this->getLayout()->getBlock('root')->setHeaderTitle(__('Password forgotten'));

This is a part of an class, I need to know how to pass it to simple page.

Is there any way to show renderized 1column layout with custom message in the middle content?

I know if I create a custom cms block, then it works, but I don’t want depend of the cms ;(

thnx ;D
