Garito, please reread Andreas words. They are wisdom of the masters and
not to be ignored.

What would you want to catalog from the Page Template? The <html>,
<body> and <div> tags? The tal:content attributes?

Not these? 
But there is nothing else in there. There should be *no* content in
the page template. If there is then *you are doing something wrong* and
you will pay a heavy price down the road. Stop what you are doing and
think about doing it in a better way.
