in reply to Why use templates?

Web pages are to pass the information to others (in one way or another), templating system (whatever it would be) is just to provide logical content - something that gives the sense of existance to this page and the way the page is shown has nothing to do with templates IMHO. There actually *is* a template to fill with content - that's all.
How does this template look?! It depends on who prepared it. I prefer the KISS rule - light background, without any special effects, without any special graphics, and almost never use CSS (i did once in my life ;-p). When i look at those simple pages i can always find what i'm looking for, without loading MB's of pictures, backgrounds, icons, etc...
Templating with Perl or anything else privides content, while CSS is ment to provide 'more inteligent' look ;-) That's all!
