I do not know TypoScript and i do not know FLUID. I only SAW the syntax in
documentations and so... And i have to say that i feel much more comfortable
with FLUID and i think it is easier to learn IMHO, because of its HTML like
Syntax. Just wanted to share my feeling about that...

It may some kind offtopic. I have no experience with TypoScript nor FLUID
nor TemplateViola. Does FLUID supersede TypoScript or how do they relate to
each other? Does FLOW3 needs TypoScript? Or is it Typo3 related as the name

 Kind regards
