	When I did the research for my template engine paper, that was also the 
most theoretically-inclined paper I could find. In fact, it was almost 
the only paper focusing on template languages. That entire area, of 
considerable importance in practice, seems to be completely ignored by 
computer science.

	 My own work was more on the practical side, but its first section may 
be of some interest for its (sadly informal) pointing out of 
relationships between template engines and functional programming. The 
paper and the slides can be found at:


	Good luck.
