Yeah! For example, I'm working on a offline CMS that actually uses 
include/declaration files for all the components of a static site. The 
CMS will grab all that apply templates and "render" the finished html, 
PHP is actually used to power this CMS.

Unless a post or a "diagram" shows up that makes me go "Ah! Now I see!" 
I'm not going to bother responding to any further posts on this subject.
