One distinction which I find important is that HTML::Template is for HTML, whereas TT2 is a general-purpose templating system. I've used the latter for HTML/XHTML, XML, CSS, LaTeX and an assorted bunch of weird and wonderful proprietary data formats. Given that TT2 does all this, I haven't felt any great need to learn HTML::Template's syntax as well.
If all you will ever want to produce are HTML templates then this probably won't matter to you, but my preference is for the more flexible tool.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
