Re: Smart vs. Dumb Templates

"you want to hobble the template writers lest they escape into the Dark Forest of Programming, taking maintainability with them." - What a nice saying, Ian! ROFL!!!

"You can separate hard programming from easy programming, or you can separate logic from layout, but you cannot do both." - Aha! Now I understand why the problems of template languages is one of the most painful problem I know. Thank you!

BTW, I use CheetahTemplate for rendereing http://phd.pp.ru/ , and I use the full power of inheritance. See http://phd.pp.ru/about/technical.html . Look at the templates for an every page.
