Ok what your doing there makes more sense but it means on subsequent requests i'll have to strip out the tbody which i'm not thrilled about since I only need the rows not the body itself. I really just want the following
< tbody >
include file that loops over rows
but when I include the file via th:include on the tr it fails.
I'll experiment with moving the whole thing up a level but this just seems overly complicated for doing what is fairly standard in other templating languages
