There are different concepts of ordering: - sequential down the page - hierarchical - precedence I think we're talking about sequential - since XML does have a hierarchical ordering, and doesn't seem to tread into precedence. TAL defines precedence (define before condition, etc.) The idea for implementing 'else' (though I now think it's unneccessary) used the hierarchical ordering of XML to get the ordering it needed. But I also submit that ZPT can't be simply 'filling the slots' since it has a condition statement. _______________________________________________ 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 )
