You may be better off using DTML for text generation, although it is
possible to use ZPT.

I don't understand this.

If the tal:condition evaluates false, the entire 'x' tag is omitted.
Otherwise, the tag is replaced by the bgcolor_setting property. I
*think* you want:
...which uses the property if 'here/ttw_style_editing' is true, and the
default text '#FFFFFF' is the property is false or doesn't exist.

That what the "source" in "Browse HTML source" means -- TAL source code.
Unless they are accessing the template through a WebDAV source port,
people pulling the .css should get the rendered text.

That's because ZPTs with a non-"text/html" content type use XML rules
instead of HTML rules. Your template then needs to be well-formed XML,
and you must have expat installed.
