I can't remember a project which I worked on that didn't have a requirement which included sending out emails. Most of the time the templates that are needed for these emails are so small that a simple text file with some wildcards does the trick. It does the trick but nothing more. It's hardly an elegant solution and there is no support to loop through elements or do any other complicated stuff. I wanted a better, broader solution so I started to look around for usable libraries. I have been hearing a lot of good things of the Spark View Engine and wondered if it was possible to use it to generate html from a given template.
