  Page Templates are a web page generation tool.  They help
  programmers and designers collaborate in producing dynamic web pages
  for Zope web applications.  Designers can use them to maintain pages
  without having to abandon their tools, while preserving the work
  required to embed those pages in an application.  In this chapter,
  you'll learn the basics features of Page Templates, including how
  you can use them in your web site to create dynamic web pages
  easily. In the chapter entitled "Advanced Page
  Templates":AdvZPT.stx, you'll learn about advanced Page Template

     Unfortunately, what this really means is that the authors abandon any effort to explain to newcomers how this
     stuff really works. The expressions are not explained adequately. Consequently, it talks weeks until one
     recognizes that the preface is no longer correct ("All you need to know is HTML"). So stop right here and go
     to www.hetland.org/python/instand-hacking.php and to Alan Gauld at
     http://www.freenetpages.co.uk/hp/alan.gauld/ for excellent shortcuts.
     Save yourself 6 weeks.
