I appreciate everyone's responses! For further study on my end, does anyone know of articles or books that specifically deal with web templates and content creation? The specific topic I'm looking at is related to web portals, but general papers would be equally helpful. Thanks again to everyone who replied!

Subject: Template Usage in the Creation of Web Pages
I'm researching the use of templates as a part of the web publishing process. The process involved with the research is simple: several templates are created and then one is chosen based on the type of content the user of the template is intending to publish.

Clearly, templates are useful. They save time when structure is fixed and the focus is on content delivery.

My research is focused on when this process breaks down, namely, when the final page deviates radically from the template in some way. I'm writing to see if anyone has any experience managing templates or opinions on the subject, either when templates work well and they are a boon, or when templates break down and they are a handicap.
