      Rather than using macros for chunks of presentation shared
      between pages, you can use macros to define entire pages. Slots
      make this possible.  Here's an example macro that defines an
      entire page::

        <html metal:define-macro="page">
            <title tal:content="here/title">The title</title>

            <h1 metal:define-slot="headline"

            <p metal:define-slot="body">
              This is the body.  

            <span metal:define-slot="footer">

         Can someone tell me why the above example doesn't work? The <h1> tag does not show up. There seems to be
         something wrong with the tal:content statement. The tag renders without it.

         Woops nevermind. here/title = the folder title which was blank - I was looking to see template/title.
