Yes indeed, it looks like we shall have the option of seperating
(and even distributing) content, structure, and style.  Pat
addressed many of the issues as to why people may want to do
so: managing distributed team efforts and organizing site
resources being two good reasons.  It is usually less complicated
and more efficient if the content author writes the text in one
file, the artist lays out the design and makes it look good with
another, and the programmer merges it all together using a third.

I am looking forward to it. :)
