James,

I improved elements quite a bit. Now you can place xhtml files in
Element.template_root
(typically /element or /src/element') and Nitro automatically converts
them to Elements. I also added a simple Layout helper if you want to
be compatible with Rails. Not enabled by default (because i think
Layout sucks).

I think the new

<Layout>
  ...
</Layout>

with the template for layout in element/layout.xhtml will be just fine
for you. There are some more improvements (for example all
sub-elements are now implicitly named) and some comments.

check out the repo version.

regards,
George.
