Web Application Support

I am keeping this in mind thanks to Ken Snyder. The basic idea is to use AML as a templating engine not just for mobile applications, but also for full web applications. However, since the implementation can be (and usually is) very different on those two overall platforms, it may not be desirable to use the same template for a web application as for a mobile application. It could be very cool, or it could be overkill.
