[portland] Which templating engine am I thinking of?

I remember Igal mentioning a templating engine at a meeting that he
liked because it uses valid XHTML as its source, and allows for
placeholder text in tag contents. So you could hand some template code
to a designer, who could load it up in Dreamweaver and work on it as
though it were a static HTML file.

I didn't manage to remember the name of the engine though. Is it SimpleTAL?

I haven't had a chance to use many different templating engines; so I
have been poking around to see what I am missing out on. SimpleTAL
seems nice for its aforementioned XHTMLness. I have also been reading
good things about Mako, Jinja, Genshi, and Cheetah.
