Hello princepawn,

Thank you for your fast and detailed answer.

The poor support level of MxScreen is a pity. I haven't looked at it in detail, but I like the idea of recorded fields (with validation and storage). For my own framework I thought of a ddl (data definiton language) which models datatype, name, label, verification, storage and relation to other tables. So I might be able to "automatically" expand the main table with an 1:1, 1:n or n:m relationship to other tables.

But back to the templating systems:
I don't like the inline-approach. You should be able to change the html-pages without programming knowledge. Especially, tools such as Dreamweaver should cope with the tags. There might be problems with <...> tags, because sometimes they will be converted to '&_lt;' and so on.

A few weeks ago you had a comparison on your home node about the different templating systems. When you compare HTML::Template and Template::Toolkit - which one is faster without using caching or precompiled pages?
I don't need to much from the templates. Loops and IF-THEN-ELSE-constructs are all I need.

Once again, thank you.
I hope we can continue this discussion.
Good bye, Uwe
