Thanks. It looks pretty spiffy. I like the idea of incorporating the
templating system into the document via the py:* attributes.

Unfortunately, my tools don't - which is another one of the things I
like about Cheetah: it doesn't interfere with my X/HTML tools. For
instance, I edit attributes by asking the editor to let me edit the
current tags attributes. It opens window with a list of valid
attributes, along with type information about those attributes. I edit
the list, close the window, and it inserts the required attributes,
appropriately quoted, into the tag. I couldn't use that for py:*
attributes without tweaking the DTD for each language I wanted to
edit. Similar problems crop up with the other features that depend on
information from the DTD.
