I'm coming to Lisp from over ten years of Blub programming - C++, Java and C#. For what it's worth, I think templating languages are an evolutionary dead-end. Templating languages are seductive, because you see all this static HTML, so you think the right way to go is to serve up a template where you drop in the dynamic bits. But then you have to add another dynamic element, and another dynamic element, and pretty soon you have this awful mess that you can't easily modify or debug.
