RoguePHP is a great template engine for people who want to write clean XHTML views with minimal dependencies. It forces a hard separation between view and logic and you may end up putting more code in your controllers for the view tier than you are used to for some odd cases. This does have the nice effect that the views are very clean and can be read in without any modification and edited by tools like dreamweaver. This may be helpful for your designers.
