You could choose to use a 'zmi_master' template which looked like so::
<tal:x tal:replace="structure context/manage_page_header" />
<tal:x tal:replace="structure context/manage_tabs" />
Non-boilerplate goes here.
<tal:x tal:replace="structure context/manage_page_footer" />
If you registered that template as a view in your product's
you can then use it in your own ZMI templates, e.g.:
<h1> Test ZMI Macro </h1>
I have attached a tarball of a simple Zope2 product which does this.
After installation, you should be able to visit
http://localhost:8080/zmi_test to see the results.
