    Like pudge, I tend to use Template Toolkit when I get to choose.

    I use HTML::Mason a lot at $work. It's great for when the templates are going to be maintained by Perl programmers. If HTML authors or graphic designers are going to be editing your templates then I wouldn't recommend Mason.

    The other one that's really worth looking into is Petal [cpan.org]. You can view the templates directly in your browser and they play nicely with GUI HTML editors.

    • Thank you for the tip about Mason, since I was leaning in that direction but am thinking about a project that would need to be usable by non-technical users.

      • I picked up TT2 very quickly and I am sure I have only scratched the surface of what it can do.

        I highly recommend it.

      • One more tip with regard to Template Toolkit is that you can configure it to use ASP-style tags. This will then make the templates more compatible with the windows-based GUI HTML editors.
