        If you've done much work with the dtml-in DTML repetition
        statement, you will have encountered batching. Batching is the
        process of chopping up a large list into smaller lists. You
        typically use it to display a small number of items from a
        large list on a web page. Think of how a search engine batches
        its search results. The 'tal:repeat' statement does not
        support batching, but Zope comes with a batching utility. See
        the section, "Batching" later in this chapter.
