We can either create a template and add to say, PAGE_CONTAINER using <xen:include template="template_name" /> or
add directly to PAGE_CONTAINER.
On one hand it's less to edit when reverting templates when using include template.
On the other hand, does it take longer to render the page using the include?
6 of 1, 1/2 dozen of another?
Is one better coding practice over the other?
Whatever floats your boat?
