nVelocity

I've recently been looking at nVelocity. it's quite a nice template library (originally ported from Apache's Velocity - but for .NET). Templates are stored within .vm files and follow a pseudo-code formatting standard. Ive found that by using nVelocity, it enabled the following advantages:

1. Alterations can be made to the template for a piece of software without modification to the source code itself.
2. The template files are pseudo code and quite easy to understand. A user with minimalist knowledge would be able to alter these without a huge developer training overhead.
3. Templates can be switched easily and multiple templates can be adopted as required.

If you like this templating ideology, visit the website here: http://nvelocity.sourceforge.net

its free and open source!
