I do, and that's how I generate my web pages. Here is an excerpt:

;; I escape into plain HTML with (xml ...), but it also takes file 

   (write-normal-page "general.html" "General" #f (xml "general.xml"))

;; general.xml:

   <scheme>(red-title "Contract")</scheme>
   If you ...

As you can see, I can also escape back into Scheme via <scheme> (and a 
few other macros). So it's really a quasiquote, comma like system.

The XML boxes in DrScheme have supplanted this system so I just 
maintain it for my own sake.
