ah, this appears to be a perfectly valid difference of opinion then. i 
certainly find that it is reasonable (and expedient) to have presentation 
logic in a template - cheetah isn't designer friendly enough to let a 
designer loose on it, but i could definitely get a php monkey to update the 
template instead of having a dev fudge with it. you seem to want any sort of 
code out of there, which is a perfectly reasonable preference as well.

thank you for your input, it is much appreciated.
