It probably is very useful, but I know I'd get hopelessly lost because 
there is just so much stuff on it. Most of the newbie stuff about macros 
is probably quite old by now so I doubt whether I'd find it with a 
sequential browse through the Cookbook. 

It's disappointing to find that the link from Newbies under the ZOPE 
section does not function.

What I really need is something like a ZPT macro which defines a header 
and footer and leaves a slot in the middle for my own content. I don't  
expect to be able to write my own macro for quite a while - too many 
pitfalls... I'm not even sure is that is how I should be approaching 
writing a home page.
