Odd it works for me:

Output:

<html>
   

<body>
    <div>
        <h1>This is the external macro</h1>
    </div>    <div>
        <h1>This is the internal macro</h1>
    </div></body>

</html>


Program Code:

<?php
    include_once('PHPTAL.php');

    $template = new PHPTAL('page.html');

    try {
        print $template->execute();
    } catch ( Exception $e ){
        print "Error: {$e->getMessage()}\n";
    }

?>
