well, i have to put in a plug for my Template::Simple. it is much easier 
to learn and use (only 4 markups) and it can do almost any templating 
job you want. also with the compiler option, it is the fastest templater 
around (much faster than TT). most templating doesn't need all the 
complexity of the larger templaters but they are popular. check this 
module out and you may be surprised at its effectiveness and yes,
