++skazat, nicely written piece.

I also have found the Template Toolkit to be a fantastically useful tool and I've barely scratched the surface of its capabilities. I haven't really used DreamWeaver much but I have built templates which people to maintain using FrontPage. When I create my template in Perl I use:

my $template = Template->new({ INCLUDE_PATH => '/some/path', START_TAG => '<%', END_TAG => '%>', });

Which means that the templating tags look like ASP to FrontPage - I haven't had any trouble with things getting messed with so far.

    Ah,

    I like the start_tag and end_tag idea. For the templating language I developed, I used <?start and end?> which Dreamweaver recognized as server side code, and gave me a cute little PHP icon in the editor.

    I can't wait to use TT for producing XML, paint my paintings, make me dinner :)
