OK, I admit, I was being a bit of a bastard in my reply ;-)

My point was that Velocity doesn't force you into any such thing -
Velocity can generate Visual Basic (apologies to everyone for using rude
words :-) program code for all it cares about the output. So, if you
could show a bit of code and explain how your app works, that would
really help.

Personally, I use Velocity to serve XHTML. It takes the document from
the file, parses it into AST (I think :-) and during the merge inserts
the values into the resulting document. What's the meat of the document
is totally irrelevant.

I just created this document in one of my applications (named code.vm):

This is a totally bogus document $res.encodeURL($req.getRequestURI()).

and this is what the browser serves:

This is a totally bogus document /code.vm.

There are no headers at all...
