I personally don’t want to write our whole site in ruby. Our designer
would be out of work as he really doesn’t write code, but he does know

certainly done well making frontpage work with their asp of course.
Some of the goals of the MasterView xhtml template engine for Rails are
make it easier to do WYSIWYG editing while still keeping the
Rails ERB. You can let your designers to the html and css while the
developers simply sprinkle attributes in to make it live.
MasterView uses a tag attribute library to accomplish this, but also
you to keep your views DRY by reusing partials and layouts across them.
MasterView has been designed to be extended and customized by users to
their own widgets to make things easy to use across projects. The
directive set was started from the Rails helper syntax to make it easy
Rails developers to learn (don’t have to learn something new). The
holds even more powerful widgets encapsulating common functionality
custom layout, …)
MasterView is packaged as a gem or plugin and has a generator to get a
to production ready scaffold instantly.

I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
