 From which we read, "The most popular templates are JSP, JSF, Struts, Apache
Wicket, Facelets."

More generally with JSP, JSF and facelets, among others, we have this idea of
the tag library, which is something like templates except the purists will
shout and throw things at you for saying so. JSP started to be amazing when
the JSTL (JSP Standard Tag Library) came out. Then everyone saw how a good
tag library could be set up, how particularly compatible with XML namespaces
the idea is, and began coming up with cool stuff like JSF.

A whole lot of stuff is coming out as tag libraries these days. It's not so
much that there is *a* markup framework out there, as that there are a ton of
them all rooted in the same metaframework of tag libraries.
