  • Allow custom tags;
  • Allow access to external parameters (through either dynamic bindings, or explicit injection); and,

Systems no longer under consideration (at least for syntax) are:

System Reason
CL-WHO Not a markup language
HTOUT Not a markup language
HUNCHENTOOT No template functionality
LML Not a markup language
LML2 Not a markup language
Weblocks No template functionality
