You never break out of PHP?
I like to split my pages into a PHP script and a template file. In the PHP file I almost never break PHP. In fairness though, there's a lot of things like this in the templates:
<h2><?php echo utils::pageReadyString($page->content['title']); ?></h2>
But those templates are often shared between more than one type of page. E.g., news and information pages both share the same template file as they both have a title, a sub-navigation menu and a body, and I made sure they use the same variable names. News then just includes another template for user comments. Makes it easier to maintain a consistent feel through the site.
So the answer to your question is: "it depends" :)
But yes, point taken, I should have said "for the sake of 3 additional keypresses each time you enter PHP".
