The goal of Pot (PHP Object Template) is to totally divide the logic of a Web site from the design. Pot can be used by "common" people just by writing some XML tags in the HTML code.

It supports technologies like Cascading Style Sheets, JavaScript, animated objects, and form data checking. Using your favourite WYSIWYG editor (like Dreamweaver or GoLive), you can create HTML pages where you place a tag wherever you need and write the required Pot parameter and value tags. There are 41 objects ready to be used.
