[Haskell-cafe] ANN: nice-html, an all-around "nice" html templating library, similar but different to lucid, blaze, type-of-html, etc.

Sorry for causing the confusion. I misread that statement in your README.

with `nice-html` ? If some content inside the template is conditional based
on input values, will it work properly, as expected?
