Well, up to a point, it's normal that FreeMarker would come up. There's 
a basic application space, and FreeMarker is a very prominent tool in 
that space. In any general discussion of templating issues, it's normal 
that it would come up -- how FM deals with whatever issue, etcetera.

I didn't start the thread. I entered it mostly to rebut Malcolm Edgar's 
  claims of Velocity's "simplicity" winning out over FreeMarker 
"complexity". His claim looked pretty dubious and I thought it proper to 
write a rebuttal. It doesn't do any harm to you or anybody else on the 
list; it just provides information that you might not have had before, 
and a different viewpoint.
