Subject Re: is there a templating system that....

This looks useful as well.  I think i might bench HTML::Template and 
Text::TagTemplate against one another for memory usage.  (i'm sure 
speed is comparable and barely noticeable.  the more apache forks i can 
get the better though)

If/else and loops are already 'too much' -- I essentially just want 
variable substitution.  I want designers to be able to work on a page 
and not need to know anything about the  code/logic.  Names go here, 
dates go here, etc.   I have a bunch of custom mod_perl stuff that 
handles everything right now. I just want to split the code out of the 
handler routines.
