I've worked with MVC before - via Struts in Java - and found that in that instance, I was able to keep HTML pages exactly as I'd wanted them to be. (This viewpoint is based on the "best case" static HTML I typically developed beforehand, then handed over to the Java programmers to fill in the holes.)
This worked out really well and we were able to produce some of the "best" web pages from a CMS that I've seen. Could .NET MVC give me the separation I need, or would it be a false economy to put aside valuable development time to test this?
If .NET MVC isn't going to give me this fine-grained control over separation, any recommendations for .NET coding practices, libraries, etc. which might would be really helpful.
