Thanks, Dmitry and Gideon, for your kind words. I wanted to know whether 
   flexible content elements can be emulated the traditional way. What I 
mean is that flexible content defines a template for individual elements 
quite easily which we can later on plug into our page templates anywhere 
where we are allowed to insert content, just like regular content 
elements. If I were using markers and all would that be possible? I am 
just a bit naive in visualizing this so I thought to ask the noble guys 
of the lists. I have read the mtb's (a long time back) and the ftb 
documents but I'll re-read them following Dimitry's advice.

Warm regards,

Syed S. Rahman.
