I am not sure I understand that, and although it is quite a drift from
the actual subject, I will be happy if you explain it.

Again, I am not sure I understand the above - I say exactly the same (I
think): I don't like non-programmers to mess with my code, so because of
that I program according to the Skin pattern, and then the
non-programmers mess only with the templates. This worked for me for at
least 5 years now in many projects, and made everybody happy.

Not yet... sorry.. was extremely busy... I will try to do it ASAP, and
