I just looked at Fragments (rend.Fragment).  The problem with fragment
is Post data comes from outside the fragment (outer tag's 'data'
attribute).  How is it possible to send the data  to fragment

Please note that this DOES NOT work

    <n:invisible n:data="recentPosts" n:render="sequence">        
        <n:invisible n:render="content">
            <n:slot name="content" />

actually 'content' has the patterns for the 'recentPosts' sequence,
but nevow throws exception

"The pattern named 'item' wasn't found in the template."
