I can appreciate that, but PHP *is* a templating language that is meant to
embed dynamic strings into static strings.
Therefore, I strongly agree that there should be a shorthand for this type of
thing. When considering correct separation of code and templates, this output
of dynamic strings should be optimized in all ways possible - both performance
wise and syntactically.
And yes, all of my template code uses short tags for direct string output and
the short tags do cause problems so I'm looking forward to a better way. Even
in PHP 5 :)
