Comments on HAML?

I have been asked a couple of times at job interviews if I am
familiar with HAML or Liquid so I was wondering if maybe I should
start using them and perhaps it would make the views easier to work
with.

If I install HAML on a machine where my app is that has alot of
regular HTML in the .erb views already, will it still work with those
or do I need to convert everything to HAML ? Can I have some views in
regular HTML and some in HAML, things mixed like that ?

Any gotchas for using HAML/Liquid with AJAX ? I understand Rails 3
encourages unobtrusive Javascript, but installed the older gem for
doing AJAX for the time being as sometimes seem to not get very
excited about writing Javascript.

You can mix and match pretty much as you want (e.g. haml view
rendering a .erb partial or vice-versa)

There is also this online html to haml converter:

Depending on how complex your markup you may need to edit, but I found
this
to be pretty good for wholesale converting a number of pages without the
drudgery.
