Ah yes. But then, you throw all the advantages of aquisition away.
I would suggest to at least copy the template only on request,
if changes are really made. The 'web designers' should have the
opportunity to delete this template to derive their design from the
previus folder. This way you would not have all the templates laying
around in every subfolder and making changes very very hard.
An yes, this is understandable even by the underenlighted web designer

Definitely agree. Thanks.

 Hi,
 
 I need some help.
 I have a DTML method at the root of Zope called 'Template'.
 How can I make the constructor of a ZClass (folderish) to copy this method
 to each of its instances ? Can someone provide me with a complete snippet to
 add in the ZClass constructor ?

Copy? Why?
aquisition should make it 'visible' in every subfolder automatically.

Regards
Tino

I have several reasons whay I need to attach a template to each ZClass. 
Among them are:
1/ cases like high level folders where I might want to customize the page's 
rendering and/or skin,
2/ cases like contained objects which uses a generic skin (but you can still 
customize the skin of one among them, if you want)
3/ my site needs to be easily designed / modified by Web Designers that do 
not understand Acquisition.

Thanks for the tip Chris, I was able to do it by adding my 
ZClass-specific-template in the Zope Product folder and adding a call to
manage_clone(ZClass-specific-template, 'standard_template', [REQUEST]) in 
the ZClass constructor method. I use the same id 'standard_template' to 
exploit acquisition globally on the site (the Web designer would not have to 
care about that).
Next thing is generalising this method to also allow multiple templates 
available for each object i.e. the Content Manager can choose a prefered 
skin when instanciating an object.
