     8=== Zope/Plone ===
     9 * The fundamental difference here is that Zope is a *server* and completely self contained. It has it is a webserver cum database server cum templating engine. On the other hand Django is a loosely coupled set of components, and one has to set up the webserver and database outside the framework on one's own - and there is a plethora of choices for these.
     10 * The Zope templating language is practically a programming language on it's own and it is common practice to embed script python code within templates. Django, on the other hand strictly limits the amount of logic one can put in templates, and it is impossible to embed python code in templates.
     11 * Zope has clearly defined methods for adding extensions and products. Django does not.
