Yeah, I never mentioned that... although it was mostly because I  
assumed that most templating languages would provide for that.  I  
think looking at everyone's suggestions and talking with everyone  
pushed me more towards Petal too.

HTML::Template does provide for it in a roundabout way - using  
comments, and the new version of Text::Tagtemplate handles it well.   
Neither are 'viewable' templates.

That's pretty much dead on.

Ironically, right now I'll be doing the bulk of the html design and I  
wish I could reduce my own interactions with myself, but I don't know  
if that's possible.  Looking into the future I want to be able to  
compartmentalize responsibility.  And blame.
