Sure. There is only one caveat: that two positional arguments need to be passed for recursive calls of DTML objects ("None" and "_"). >Can you explain the sequence-item magic with all special cases to a newbie? There is no need. Newbies do not need to know *all* special cases only the most essential ones. The myriads of TALES expression types are almost as bad the "sequence-item" special cases. >ZPT is another approach to generate HTML. It's more logical, easier to learn >and read.
