just installed the whole thing and i'm looking around the blackcandy theme,
and somehow - despite the documentation - i just don't see why it's the $layout
inside the layout-div that can be edited, in other words, that gets the html editor.
and should i just be able to add more divs of my own containing such '$variables'
to get parts of a site updateable?
i will be looking around a few hours more, hopefully in the meantime there will be
some answers to this post

$Layout triggers the loading of a subtemplate from the /templates/Layout/ folder. If you have a Page.ss in /templates/ which has a $Layout then it will load the /templates/Layout/Page.ss template as well. http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=themes:developing has some information on the nested templates but doesn't go into much detail. You could think of $Layout as a 'special' kind of include which includes a template from /templates/Layout.
