Which with Nevow is perfectly natural since you can do:

<div nevow:render="content">
    <nevow:slot name="content" />

and then in the code:

def render_content(self, ctx, data):
    ctx.tag.fillSlots('content', My_Fragment())
    return ctx.tag

Just like I've done in weever (on berlios) where there is a main file that
defines the base class for all the pages and requires a content fragment as
argument with which it will fill the empty slot to render the whole page.

Then I subclass the main page class to give the behaviour I need, and then I
pass the content 'page' to have it rendered in the output.
