Really? Do YOU have experiences with it? I use it for my pages (not big
piece of art, but anyway: )
and it works. There are certainly some problems when using perl in
divertions etc, but it easily allows you to use content-describing
tagging (as SGML/XML) in addition to appearance-describing one (HTML).
Foooor example, you could create download box with something like this:

<box "red" "Download links">
  <download "New GIMP" "";>
  <download "New Potatoshop" "";>

And it could make a nice coloured box with title and links with
filesizes displayed.

That said, I think it's not so important what to use, provided that it
will be free and easily accessible, makes webmaster's routine work easy
and will keep the site clean as discussed recently.
