Just getting started with magento. Can someone please explain to me the following:
The template “2columns-right.phtml” contains the following code: <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('header') ?>
which if my understanind is correct references the page.xml in layout to the following block:
<block type="page/html_header" name="header" as="header" >
which causes the “header.phtml” file to be displayed.
What is it about this line <block type="page/html_header" name="header" as="header" > which somehow references template/page/html/header.phtml without making use of the template="page/html/* attrinute?
Thanks for all your help.
