    Congratulations, you've successfully taken a mock-up and turned it
    into a dynamic Page Template.  This example illustrates how Page
    Templates work well as the "presentation layer" to your
    applications.  The Page Templates present the application logic
    (the Python-based scripts) and the application logic works with the data
    in your site (the files).

       once i figgered out how to set the publish folder, & that the object needs to exist in the zope database
       before you publish to it, i found this part of the tutorial quite useful. i am interested in learning how to
       use zope to build w/ markup and python, so i dont agree w/ the complaint that this shld be all about tal. the
       balance is pretty good

       except that when i open index_html in mozilla composer, i get the expanded html, & if i change the file &
       save it back, the expanded html overwrites the tal tags. i thought the tal was supposed to survive the round
       trip. wassup?
