I agree that this is a great way to keep the HTML/CSS side pure, and still have lots of power to enhance it with dynamic content.

There is an (experimental?) xmerl_sax_parser-based module that is able to parse most existing HTML - certainly enough to handle the kind of templates one should be able to expect from a professional web designer*. With it, and perhaps something like xmerl_xs, it shouldn't be that hard to come up with an enliven-inspired lib in Erlang.
