I was about to mention TERRY, but Ulrich beat me to it.

One nice thing about TERRY is that it allows you to change the markup
simbols. For instance it is entirely possible to use:
<?tal:content="here/fgcolor" black?>
(which, by the way, is a semi-standard way to do extentions to html and
looks like php escapes)
instead of
%(tal:content="here/fgcolor" black)%

However I think there still isn't an easy, thru the web, way to change
the markup signals.

Ideas don't stay in some minds very long because they don't like
solitary confinement.
