[Zope] Using a template for all pages, or calling dtml as a function, or
perhaps switch to Zpt ??

I have a site where i want to use the same template for all the pages.
Lets say that I have the following structure:
I then want to use this template for all my pages. Most of my products
will them implement "primary_content()" and "secondary_content()"
methods. If a product hasn't implemented one of the methods, it just
finds it from somewhere up the aquisition (aq) path
So far so good.
My problem is that it seems that I have to define "index_html" in every
product for this to work.
If I just put an "index_html" in the root of my aq path zope will
traverse it's way up to it allright, but naturally won't find the
objects "primary_content()" and "secondary_content()" methods. So the
view is wrong.
If I create a simple dtml attribute that looks like:
<dtml-var "aq_parent.index_html(None, _)"> to call the aquired
index_html within the current namespace, it doesn't work either.
I want to use this type of layout in a site using a lot of products, so
putting all the index_html code inside each product is A Bad Thing for
Has anybody got an idea as to how I can approach this? Perhaps by using
Isn't it possible to call the index_html like a function from within the
current namespace ?? If so, isn't index_html(None, _) the right way to
