What's the difference between an embedded view in a form and a $$ view template representation?
An embedded view is just that, embedded. It is a part of the form or page and the browser displays the view based on what is defined and presented in the page. Embedding a view or folder lets you control the size and appearance of a view or folder display, especially on the Web. The $$ViewTemplate tells Domino which view(s) the form applies to. You can also have a form entitled $$ViewTemplateDefault which will apply to any view not specifically covered by a $$ViewTemplate.
