Well, for Django, Mako, Cheetah and quite a few others, this might not 
be _that_ true - you can use any of the templating systems to generate 
almost any kind of text, not just HTML, and the templating logic itself 
is _not_ expressed "in terms of the desired output language" (ie: the 
"template langage" elements are not valid HTML).

+1 on this - even if some may argue that this shouldn't prevent you from 
using Python to handle the presentation logic (whitespace problems set 
aside, and cf Mako and Cheetah).
