    My primary requirement is to seperate html page layout and design from the scripts and code which access a database. So two groups of ppl can work on a site without getting in each others way.

    So I've been looking into several products including zope, jsp and midgard. I don't have much experience with either of them. Could you briefly tell me what capabilities Zope and JSP have and how they differ from each other ?

    Thx in advance

    Presentation templates


    Zope has DTML, a templating language which was meant to separate content from logic, but it sometimes isn't enough. For example, it's often not reasonable to expect web designers to not stomp on DTML code in pages. Thus the developers often end up with the carpeting job of taking designer-created HTML and stuffing it in to dynamic pages.

    For this reason, Zope has grown Presentation Templates (http://www.zope.org//Wikis/DevSite/Projects/ZPT) which aim to survive round trips between presentation folks and designers. I recommend you check them out.
