In a new post to the SitePoint PHP Blog today, Ian Muir shows you how to keep thing separated using the HTML Template IT extension. It helps prevent application functionality and logic from seeping its way into your output.
One of the more challenging things I've run into while doing PHP development is effectively separating presentation from program logic.

In my recent projects, I've starting using the HTML Template IT extension in PEAR, and its made things a lot easier.
