A list of new technologies that might change how things are published on the web. (Not sure that's the best way to phrase this.)

New Technologies

Page Templates, a new template language inspired by Enhydra's XMLC and created in part by Python BDFL Guido van Rossum, offer a way to achieve true separation of logic and presentation on the web. First being introduced in Zope, they let HTML designers edit templates without losing the dynamic elements of the page.

Page Templates are a web page templating tool similar to PHP, JSP, ASP, and XMLC. They help programmers and designers collaborate in producing dynamic web pages. Web designers can use them to maintain pages without having to abandon their tools, while preserving the work required to embed those pages in an application.

The goal of Page Templates is natural workflow. A designer will use a WYSIWYG HTML editor to create a template, then a programmer will edit it to make it part of an application. If required, the designer can load the template back into his editor and make further changes to its structure and appearance. By taking reasonable steps to preserve the changes made by the programmer, he will not disrupt the application.
