Hi James,

I didn't think it was possible to nest tales modifiers because the
parser assumes that anything after the modifier is the subject that
needs modifying.  Maybe I'm wrong but it doesn't matter - I've run
into this before and here's what I did (using your code):

<tal:block tal:define="global prodSellPrice
<td tal:content="money: prodSellPrice"></td>

The <tal:block/> could be another <td/> with an tal:omit-tag in it
but...I like using tal:block if I'm just defining a variable.  So the
TAL variable gets defined to the php: value, then the money: modifier
will format the TAL variable.  I haven't tried doing the define in the
<td/> tag - I just like to keep that stuff separated.

If you HAVE to have nested modifiers then, because the money: modifier
comes before the php: modifier, you could regex the $src argument for
modifiers and handle the nesting yourself in the tales_money function
- but I'm not sure how to handle modifiers inside a tales function.
