Pre-processors are just bad. (If you mean macro processors, that is.
If you mean transformation languages, such as XSLT, then you have the
answer to your own question.)

PHP, which stands for "Pretty Home Page", was surnamed "PHP HTML Preprocessor" (a so-called recursive acronym, like GNU) when it was a couple of years old, obviously in an effort to give it a more serious appeal.

I thank that's what Scott was referring to, not macro processors.

As for XSLT in that role, it doesn't do SQL and send mail.
