Benefits of detaching publishing page from page layout

In the publishing feature of Sharepoint every page must be derived from the page layout. This page layout actually decide the look and feel plus contents of the page, so if u use one layout more than a page then it is difficult to manage the look and feel because if u make change in page layout then this changes are automatically reflected on all the pages which using this page layout.
Sharepoint designer has given one nice functionality to detach the page from it's layout. By detaching page from it's layout, page got a following benefits.

  • All the content fields and page fields can be used on the page.

  • Use any designs templates to the page,this will not affect to other pages.

  • Getting advantage of using DataView, FormView webparts etc.

That's all here.
