Hi, I have read through(and tried out) the tutorials and Guides at Zope.org,
and now eager to port my company's website over to Zope. (The website was
originally programmed in PHP)

In my original design, I used OOP mainly. I defined each section(e.g. News,
Events, Products) as a class by itself, inheriting from a "main" superclass.
Each class would contain their own set of attributes(such as font-color,
title) and methods(e.g. display news headline, or display events schedule).
Common attributes & method that are widely used are placed(shared) in the
"main" class(e.g. talking to MySQL database).

So, if there's any changes or updates, inheritance will propagate the
changes to the rest of the subclasses. (As usual, management will require
extra features such as personalised page, membership or web-based email to
be added in future. Hopefully, this kind of structure would make adding new
features a breeze.)

I believe Zope is based on a similar way (and much more powerful). I was
wondering how shld i start something like this in Zope - i read abt
ZClasses(where you can define your own Folders), Products(for defining yr
business logic) and DTML(for dynamic data display). Your opinions will be
much appreciated.
