What is True templating?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I am just basic templating person (smarty and others). I was wondering
what levels of templating is attainable. Can i open up a .tpl file and
see exactly how the HTML will render? Right now if I open a .tpl file
on the browser I see smarty tags and stuff. Also, more advanced users
generate input fields (text boxes, drop downs) and all that using
quickforms making the .tpl file more crappy..

I was wondering if there can be more perfect separation of presentation
and PHP logic, by which you just open up the template and you see the
HTML as it would be shown with data. Can you point me to websites that
give examples on this? need not be ones with Smarty.
