While it's been mentioned before, it's worth saying again: you
can nest 'tal:repeat' statements inside each other. Each
'tal:repeat' statement must have a different repeat variable
name. Here's an example that shows a math times-table::
<tr tal:repeat="x python:range(1, 13)">
<div tal:repeat="y python:range(1, 13)"
<td tal:content="python:'%d x %d = %d' % (x, y, x*y)">
X x Y = Z

First, read http://www.zope.org/Documentation/ZopeBook/ZPT.stx . Then read your above comment to yourself
aloud. Then think to yourself, "does DTML have anything whatsoever to do with ZPT?" (Hint: the answer is no).

/must have/should have/ # nested repeats w the same name are not verboten! (blf)
but occlusion of outer names by inner names here is in most cases not wanted.
