ZPT Basics (part 2)
Add variables and conditional tests to your ZPT templates.

| The Road Ahead |

In the first part of this series, I introduced you to Zope Page Templates, explaining how they offered Zope developers an advantage over traditional DTML by separating user interface code from program logic. I also told you a little bit about the three components of ZPT, and gave you a crash course in TAL syntax and expressions.

In this second part, I'm going to continue exploring the ZPT landscape, delving deeper into the mysteries of TAL with a look at the special TAL attributes used to define template variables and perform conditional processing in your templates. While I will be including lots of examples to help you understand the concepts better, you *will* need to have read the first part of this article in order to figure out what I'm driving at in this second one. In case you haven't already - go get yourself up to speed and then flip the page for more.
