Sorry, forgive me not able to clarify more on this topic . Here's the
piece of code from the Genshi template file :<br>
<py:match path="body" once="true" buffer="false"><body><br>
The above code is just instructing the template engine to *select*
the text content of node "body" from the XHTML streams. That's the one
I was asking actually. There's a difference between Genshi and PLT
scheme web template from my point of view , the former separates the
template macros and the real content streams ,while the latter
combines the template macros (S-expressions) with the content. As
suggested by Jay, I could use SXML/SXPATH library to parse the XHTML
content and select those nodes which I'm interested in. Yeah, this is
possible , but I havn't used that yet, on a quick read of its tutorial
(<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://modis.ispras.ru/Lizorkin/sxml-tutorial.html">http://modis.ispras.ru/Lizorkin/sxml-tutorial.html</a>) , I probably need
to obtain a SXML representation of a document which means the template
file should be expanded first (using @include-template) and then parse
it using SXML parser into a SXML document before I can use SXPath on
it, am I right ? Or is there a way to do it in template file itself ?
<pre wrap="">Actually, I think you misunderstood.
Tell us what you want and it may be pretty easy to do.

Yeah... your words sound like a style of education to me but useful
(really appreciate) . Of course I will take the stabs at writing pieces of
prototype and ask here for review. As currently I'm still on the way to
fully understand and practice with the powerful PLT scheme web framework by
means of building up my blog service , the quick follow up in this topic is
just a curious wonder and hope not offending the underlying laws of this
mailing list. I really want to contribute to this great community and be
able to help others in exchange to the huge helps from here, but as you know
my numb brain just tells me you should dig in it before you give any output
,as emphasized by you. So thanks anyway , I'll see what I would help in the

Yes, it's pretty useful and enjoyable to do web programming in plt scheme.
But I just wonder any plan to continue to extend the powerness of Plt scheme
web framework ? Like provide XPath select support in current HTML template
system which I've been using in Genshi ( a python template component used
in Trac (trac.edgewall.org) ? thanks .
Assuming it works the way most other development in PLT has seemed to
work, here's all you need to do:
Step 1. Find a student who wants a Master's or Ph.D. in Computer Science.
Step 2. Interest him/her in what you want.
Step 3. Get him/her to interest a member of the PLT group as an advisor.
Step 4. Wait for the goodies. :-)
But seriously, I'm working with some of my (high school) students on a
couple of PLT web apps and we're seeing things we wish we had and
taking stabs at putting them together. If you can give examples of the
kind of functionality you want and take stabs at writing parts of the
code, this mailing list is incredibly good about helping you along.
As someone who's gotten huge amounts of help on this list in exchange
for a mere pittance of very basic help for the few people even more
clueless than himself, my suggestion is dig in, start writing, ask for
help, and before you know it, you'll have what you always wanted.
