I've been using several toolkits in my web programming experience,
ranging from HTML::Template to Petal to TT2 and others.
At present time I mostly use TT2 since it's the more complete out there,
but the best experience I has was with Petal, and by far. When you work
with web designers (who use DreamWeaver mostly) it's difficult to make
templates which they can change just by learning a few things, but Petal
makes it possible. Problem is it lacks many features (such as decent
handling of conditions without using external plugins), and that
development is a quite still at present time since the main maintainer
Just my 2 Euro cents, anyhow.
