   Re: [xml-dev] [Ann - Zvon] Templatotron

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

This looks similar to TAL in the the zope page template system.
One difference is the approach to namespaces.
In the TAL case, a transformation is triggered simply by the presence of
an attribute from the distinguished space. In the Templatotron case,
it's the presence of such an element identifier.

What was the thinking behind this decision? From reading the tutorial,
it was not clear that this latter mechanism affords any advantage to
counterbalance the added complexity.
