Zend_View is a class for working with the "view" portion of
the model-view-controller pattern. That is, it exists to
help keep the view script separate from the model and
controller scripts. It provides a system of helpers, output
filters, and variable escaping.
Zend_View is template system agnostic; you may use
PHP as your template language, or create instances of other
template systems and manipulate them within your view
Zend_View happens in two major steps:
1. Your controller script creates an instance of
Zend_View and assigns variables to that instance.
2. The controller tells the
Zend_View to render a particular
view, thereby handing control over the view script, which
generates the view output.
