(Assuming we're talking about
http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/ZPT/SimpleTutorial) I don't
see anywhere Evan has a raw <tal> tag, though I could have missed it
in my skimming. The whole point of ZPT is to make perfectly-conforming
XHTML dynamic; it should look *perfectly normal* as a mockup in some
WYSIWYG editor, or viewed inside the management interface. This is all
pretty well laid out (to my mind, at least) in the first couple of
paragraphs in the "Applying the Principles" section of Evan's tutorial
part 1.
