I don't think that's what was originally suggested. I think what was originally suggested is that an 'if' *element* would leave something on the interpreter's stack, for use by an 'else' element later. So, the document remains well-formed, but there is a coupling between non-contained elements. -- Steve Alexander _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
