What Graham would probably have said if his plans for world domination 
via mod_wsgi had left him time is that basically each PSP "bracket pair" 
of <% ... %> is expected to stand alone. It therefore isn't quite as 
versatile as experience with (for example) Microsoft's ASP might have 
led you to believe.

This isn't to say that PSP can't do everything you want it to, merely 
that you need to adjust a slightly different programming paradigm to use 
it successfully. One way yo proceed is to build a list of snippets and 
then when you are finished emit the joined list as a string.
