Subject Re: html templates - best practise
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2003 10:07:04 GMT
Hi Alex,

i haven't think about xhtml. I will have a look at it!
We don't have an agreement, how to specify the dynamic parts. I'm used to
tapestry, which is perfect to work with html templates, but we need to
create different outputs (wap, pdf, html) so cocoon would be very nice!
I think i would mark dynamic parts with span or div tags and replace this
sections during transformation. But I'm not happy with that.

I was also thinking about velocity, but as far as understand (from some
postings) cocoon would just produce velocity output. So I could not use a
velocity template during transformation.
But maybe I'm wrong. Do you know more about that?

However this is usually done by hand as the design usually changes
