I didn't realise that in Drupal 6, with a little bit of trickery you can add a template region to a node template and not just the page template - it makes sense really and means that you can easily place blocks into nodes once you have added a region or 2. In some cases this might help you build a more block centric version of your target web design in drupal. Here's an article that shows how it's done:

[b]Q:[/b] How can I apply a theme to some blocks on my drupal website that is different to the default block theme?

[b]A:[/b] One way to do this is to use the most excellent [url=http://drupal.org/project/blocktheme]Block Theme[/url] module and provide your own custom [i]blocktheme-theme_name.tpl.php[/i] template file.

It's a Lifesaver!!

[b]Q:[/b] How do I add a reference to a java script file from a magento CMS page by using only the CMS mechanism, without having to edit any layout xml files like page.xml?

[b]A:[/b] Place a 'reference' block in the 'Custom Design' section of your page's settings and in this place an 'action' tag to include the javascript file.
