Nes is short for "No embedded source" - yet it allows for embedding SQL (grin).

The mantra of every experienced web application developer is the same: thou shalt separate business logic from display. Ironically, almost all template engines allow violation of this separation principle, which is the very impetus for HTML template engine development.
