Hello? How many Windows/MacOS9 web page designers do you know that have make
installed or even know how to use such a tool?

Even more humorous is the fact that you have invented yet another template
syntax and methodology that is not much better or even different from
several other solutions already commonly available. Hello, don't we have
enough already?

Brad, please don't use this forum as a cheap advertisement for your stuff.
