[Twisted-web] guarded example using external login form file

I'm learning nevow and I would appreciate some help modifying this


This "logs in" a user validating it with a username and password. The
form used to accept user input is embedded in the code using the stan
tags in the NotLoggedIn() class. What I want is to have the login form
in an external xhtml file (login.html), like the one that follows my
signature. My new NotLoggedIn() class simply looks like this:

class NotLoggedIn(rend.Page): 
    """The resource that is returned when you are not logged in"""
    addSlash = True
    docFactory = loaders.xmlfile("login.html")

I believe the only thing that has to change in the xhtml file (other
than the nevow xml space declaration) is on the first line, the "action"
thing (guard.LOGIN_AVATAR in guarded.py). But I can't figure out what
nevow tag to use there. 

Can you suggest how to do it?



  <form action="guard.LOGIN_AVATAR" method="post">
               <td>Customer ID:</td>
               <td><input type="text" name="username" /></td>
               <td><input type="password" name="password" /></td>
        <input type="submit" />
