I think that assesment is mostly right.  It's definately right on the 
ZPT part.  As ChrisW mentioned, DTML wasn't really sure about where it 
sat at the family dinner table.

ZPT is best used by the Dreamweaver crowd, and frankly, from within 
tools like Dreamweaver.  It is pretty verbose for being used TTW (but 
the TTW environment could be improved over time to help on this, e.g. w/ 
a colorizing/editable DIV or textarea).

FWIW, the ZPT list is discussing a proposal now for moving the 
programming in ZPT out of the "HTML" page and into...CSS!  It's a really 
interesting proposal, IMO.  It might address some of the concerns 
mentioned here, about verbosity, scanning the page looking for 
programming etc.  And it is sure to raise some new concerns. :^)

Let the fun begin...
