PHPTAL is an implementation of the excellent Zope Page Template (ZPT) system for PHP. PHPTAL supports TAL, METAL, I18N namespaces.

PHPTALES is the equivalent of TALES, the Template Attribute Language Expression Syntax. It defines how XML attribute values are handled.

As PHPTALES is similar to TALES, it should be easy to port python TAL templates into PHP ones (and vice versa).

To be TAL compliant, PHPTAL implements XPath-like access to data.

PHPTAL is freely distributed under the LGPL license, it is developed by Laurent Bedubourg and maintained by Kornel Lesiński.
