I don't aim to please them. But I do aim to meet the standards.

IMHO excessive use of render methods leads to madness. I try very hard
to make my render methods markup-unaware. Most of them read like:
tag = context.tag
thing = tag.patternGenerator('thing')
for item in data:
this = thing()
for k,v in item.items():
i.e. all that render does is compose patterns and fill slots. Hence I
like having the values of attributes as slots.

Well, I did not mean to give that impression. I would not be spending
time on Twisted+Nevow if it didn't make me happy.

Sorry, but I like using a bazillion render methods merely to set
attributes even less!
If the answer is "you can't pretty-indent xmlfile templates and still
have them validate" that's fine.
Thanks for the feedback.
