I dunno how pretty that'll be .. ZPT fits the templating of
XML-shaped stuff beautifully (hierarchical <tag>-delimited
element tree, attributes, ..). Using it to generate SQL or
robot emails or other arbitrary text feels pretty kludgy to
me, while DTML fits that bill. Problem of course is currently
that DTML is tricksy regarding namespaces and expression
syntax (i.e. everything that can replace the XXX bit in
<dtml-tag XXX>).
