Join is probably not what you need. Why do you want it all in one
template? Mapserver supports a powerful hierarchy of templates and
encourages you to use many template files. You can stack and nest
templates. You can have templates in the WEB section that effect the
whole result page, and in each layer, and even each class.
HEADER & FOOTER templates only get called once for a given layer, but
TEMPLATEs get called for each object in a layer, and you can have
different templates of each class by putting the template inside the class.
