I've written a templated panel component that uses HTML-based templates 
to render its facets. Functions quite similar to Tapestry/Facelets. In 
an HTML template, you just mark some elements with the "hefid" attribute 
and on rendering these elements will be replaced with the results of 
rendering the corresponding facet of the component.

	<td width="20%"> <span hefid="City.label">City</span> / <span 
hefid="PostCode.label">PLZ</span> </td>
	<td width="40%">
		<span hefid="City.editor">
	<td width="40%">
		<span hefid="PostCode.editor">
