It's still better than having an all-PHP file which won't show ANYTHING unless it is running on a webserver.

If you dynamically generate static html then that is the case. Not a productive paradigm. If you keep static html static and dynamically create content then that is the correct paradigm. You don't need Smarty to do that. But Smarty proves to be this correct paradigm. But I don't think its heaven to develop the presentation layer using Smarty because no one supports it (from an IDE). If anyone can give me any tips that they have learned to make their life easier with Smarty templates from the presentation layer stand point I would appreciate it.

From a presentation layer standpoint I think it is easier to use Smarty or some other template technology because you can make a page in pure HTML with dummy data and one line for each loop you are going to make. When that dummy template is done, you can see, how it looks and correct any HTML errors. Once that is done, all there is to make the proper template is to change the dummy data into smarty variables/loops and you are done.

The XOOPS way of having one master template and other templates included makes it even easier to get the right contents as you only have to focus on the main area and not worry about banner, headers, footers, sidebars etc.
