Description

The instructions at http://twistedmatrix.com/documents/current/web/howto/twisted-templates.html for sub-views continues on after the example on iteration. This was confusing for me as an experienced Twisted person, but a novice with twisted.web and templates.

I'm familiar with other templating systems, and the "include HTML/XML fragments from another file into this master file" pattern. I was trying to figure out how to do with with twisted.web, assuming (correctly) that it was probably relatively straightforward, once known.

Providing a simple MasterPageElement and a couple of SubPageElements that use XMLFile loaders to load different .xml file templates would, I think, demonstrate the idea more clearly to a novice.

I'll work up some example code and include as a ticket update.
