Creating a Page Template was the last headline.
Simple Expressions is the next one? How about:
Understanding TAL Statements then
The Structure of TAL Statements then

I have to put in and say that this is not really very useful as an introductory text. It's more like the
O'Reilly 'in a nutshell' series. It is easy for someone with programming, and particularly templating
experience, but not for a beginner, which is what it should be aimed at, since it is the core documentation
for Zope. That said, this manual is still in its formative stages; I'm just agreeing with the need for more
thorough explanation and partitioning of concepts into sections... Ahh, if only there was time...

I agree that there is a need for beginner-level documentation, feel free to contribute and write something.
It is F/OSS after all. There's nothing stopping you from fleshing out your outline. Go for it! You could even
paste a link and maybe somebody will merge it into the text.
That being said, here's a couple of links to a 4-part ZPT tutorial by Harish Kamath:

Perhaps it should be pointed out the in F/OSS, work is motivated by personal need (scratching your own itch).
As a result, the people who are *able to write* docs for beginners won't care to, and the people who *need*
docs for beginners can't write them.

It would be nice to have an option while reading this to get rid of all the inane Anonymous User comments
(including this one) so I can focus on the doument.
