JanneVee: considering your eloquent defense of COBOL in Perl: Survival of the Fittest, I surprised you didn't recommend COBOLScript.
My eloquent defense was based on the principle of what certain things are made for. COBOL -> heavy business processing. Perl -> process large amounts of information.
This means that for HTML templating I think that Perl is better suited than COBOL for the particular task.
Actually I don't like COBOL either, I just believe it has a place like FORTRAN.
