[Seaside] Seaside and HTML templates

Well, to be fair - that answer isn't really going to make the person  
asking it happy.  You can do something like this fairly easily:

-- have your designer produce an HTML template with appropriate CSS
-- take the template and create Seaside code that produces it

My blog is not implemented in Seaside (I started building it in 2002,  
well before I was really aware of Seaside), but I took a similar tack  
there.  I have CSS, and a template that was produced by the designer  
in conjunction with the CSS.  Some of the HTML is produced in the  
server, and some resides in the template - but it all follows the  
guidelines I was given in the first place.

With Seaside, you just eliminate the template and produce <all> the  
html from the server - and have it line up appropriately with the CSS.
