Fair enough, but I hadn't realised that the contents were processed at 
that time, as opposed to simply having their syntax processed. I know

It's not important to me - I can use other mechanisms for debugging - so 
perhaps not worth spending time on. Thanks, though.

However, I still have an issue related to this problem, which is that 
skin template markup (via <!--markup:) in PageHeaderFmt is being 
processed after PageText.

I've checked the order with error_log() and that's what's happening. The 
PageHeaderFmt directive calls:

  Markup('auxSelect', '<directives',

while the page directive(s) that depend on this are:

  Markup('auxSelectValue', 'inline',

Is there any way to allow the "natural" order? Currently I'm having to 
'force' things in skin.php, which is not ideal.
