I think I saw somewhere that a new / alternate syntax for Zope/DHTML
is being thought about or worked on.

If so, here's something that can give a push in (what I think is) the
right direction:  There's some dissatisfaction in the Java servlet
community re: JSP (JavaServer Pages), and one of the big reasons is
the syntax.

This article compares JSP to a competing template language that does
things (IMO) much better:


...For me, the syntax of DHTML is the most difficult aspect of Zope,
and is reminiscent of JSP.
