Ähm. I speak German. But when I learned Typo3 all those snippets in the web didn't help
me a lot - most of them were to complicated to understand.

The only thing which helped "me" a lot was to look into the sourcecode of typo3 (tslib/class.tslib_content.php
for all this stdWrap/cObject stuff) and looh HOW something is done.

By this method you do not get an "second persons view" impression of TypoScript but rather an
exact imagination of what TypoScript is :)

So you better not learn German - to understand all those pages - before you learn TypoScript but
rather PHP - to understand the source itself.

"The source" even has a double meaning in this case - not only that it is the "source code" (as a
programmer would mean) for TYPO3 but it is also the best "source" of documentation you can find :)
