In fact that would have been my next question.
The templates seem quite sophisticated and certainly need some 
explanation, esp. when customizing the output.

Fine. :-)

So the documentation should state how much it is related to TT2 and

Of course I recognized that, but this error was quite easy to handle.

Many thanks.

ATM I'm using HTML::Widget and since you have been the last maintainer 
of that package I expect HTML::FormFu to be a leap forward.
The things that annoyed me most on HTML::Widget was
- it breaks the MVC paradigm
- customizing is a real PITA (thus binds to much ressources when
  developing with it).
I'm interested in how H:F addresses those things.
