Huh? lift: snippet, surround, embed, ignore, comet, children, a, form, loc, and with-param are all built-in in liftTagProcessing. Yes, they're overrideable, but imo it'd be nicer if they were Just A Snippet, like, say, lift:msgs.
lift:bind is just bad naming. it's not actually a directive, it's just what lift:surround looks for to bind at. should probably be called surround:bind or something with a different namespace. --j On Fri, Apr 10, 2009 at 1:26 PM, David Pollak <feeder.of.the.be...@gmail.com > wrote: > Bob, > They are actually the same thing.
