"I think the best paper on the subject is Terrence Parr's work on  

Followed a little further down by:

"First, I rejected using StringTemplate (or something like it) because  
it introduced some programming into the templating mechanism and it  
would have taken a lot of work to make it XMLTemplate (and all of

of XML.)"

I wonder how they plan on being able to conditionally include  
alternative chunks of content, etc.

Anyway i thought it was interesting.
