I've used SimpleTAL/mod_python together, only one minor issue - can't get
escaped sequences (like   , <) in the template to work.  But it's
very fast, simplified development of somewhat project. Used the Zope-TAL

This looks like an interesting product. Syntactially it is very
similar to simpleTAL. I was interested in simpleTAL becuase it is
syntactically identical to the way TAL works in zope.

Obviously there are a lot of 'contextual' differences since there is
not zope framework running around simpleTAL. I'll have to look at
genshi more closely. 

Thanks for the pointer.
