There are template statements for replacing entire tags, their
contents, or just some of their attributes. You can repeat a tag
several times or omit it entirely. You can join parts of several
templates together, and specify simple error handling. All of

Despite these capabilities, you **can't** create subroutines or
classes, perform complex flow control, or easily express complex
algorithms. For these tasks, you should use Python-based Scripts
or application components.
