Anyone know how, using only the session object, to print out all the variables that are stored on that object from html?
Your help is appreciated

Don't know if this is what you're looking for or not. There's no way you can do it directly from plain HTML since HTML is static and the session object really "lives" in the dynamic environment of the web container. The only thing the session object exposes are it's attributes and a few other settings which you can read about here: http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/2.2/javadoc/javax/servlet/http/HttpSession.html
The following example JSP shows you how to generate HTML that shows the objects in the session attribute collection.
