Here's an idea:

There are a lot of HTML-templating systems out there.
Each one uses different syntax in the HTML template itself.

That makes it hard for a company to commit to anything but
the most popular templating system, because while a programmer
may decide to use a Ruby instead of PHP backend, the company
would not want the programmer's decision make them have to
go get their HTML designer to do the templates all over again.

Would anyone be interested in writing a Ruby parser for
Smarty, the most popular templating engine for PHP?

If so, my company might contribute money to help pay for the
effort.  (Not a lot, but some "extra money" to make the extra
effort worth it.)
