  • The short answer is that it's a design misfeature. As you note, FILTER can be used as a block directive whereas vmethods can't. But other than that syntactic difference, they *should* both hook into the same backend components so that filters and text vmethods are fully interchangeable. In TT2 they're not, but they will be in TT3.
