Really? You should try clicking on the drop down menu near the Add button of ZMI. That allows you to create a file ;-)... > This is how "content" is viewed.

I can't say I understood much of that, but this web page gave me an example of exactly what I wanted to do:- http://www.zopelabs.com/cookbook/1092772190 Here is the code snippet which looks somewhat different to that which you suggested, or is it basically the same? <html> <body> <!-- assume there is a file or other object containing structured text, and it's called foobar. --> <span tal:define="stx python:modules['Products'].PythonScripts.standard.structured_text; the_text here/foobar" tal:content="structure python:stx(the_text)"> The structured text goes here. </span> </body> </html> The problem is finding such examples, but at least in this instance I've learnt something, so thanks for the help. > --jcc > -- > "Building Websites with Plone" > http://plonebook.packtpub.com/ > > Enfold Systems, LLC > http://www.enfoldsystems.com -- John _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
