For me, the biggest benefit of using PHPTAL is being able to view the code
in WYSIWYG programs. Having a template system in which there are many macros
calling each other on several levels defeats this purpose. I think that in
some cases using pure PHP code may be a better way. The topic being
discussed in this thread seems to fall into this category.
I'd like to see others' opinions on this.
