I would recommend that anyone wanting a document template/production
framework or a Web development environment look at the modules
currently in existence and evaluate whether such modules are suitable
before considering writing their own. To start with, take a look at...

There have been a lot of new HTML template/production modules released
recently, but I wouldn't go and develop something new when there's
something which is almost exactly what I want available from some
server somewhere.
