I code in PHP, with Smarty as my template engine. Separating the two allows me to just focus on the PHP while deluding myself into believing the look will just magically work itself out. I wish good designers came in a bottle. I’m not a good designer, and don’t really know what to look for when trying to team up or hire one. So the bottles need FDA approved labels. I am a perfectionist and hate knowing that if I code the templates myself, they will likely look amateurish.
