JSF tags Vs Facelets

I am starting a new project and I am seriously considering Facelets, because it gets all the benefits of JSF and is also close to HTML . You don't have to forget all your HTML and start building UIs using JSF tags.

However I am bit concerned about the future of Facelets, I don't see much activity on the web site or on various blogs about facelets. There is a lot of talk about JSF thought. I don't want to lock my project with something that doesn't have a future.

What is your advice ?
Thanks

Personally I've heard nothing but excellent reviews of Facelets and its also covered in our book.

Facelets is definitely an example of the flexibility of the Faces API in that Jacob was able to provide a viewhandler technology that works completely within the API but also provides the ability to easily run outside of a JSP container.

Is it allowed mix facelets and JSF tags ? I mean you start with facelets and then if you want to take advantage of some of the open source components that are available with JSF.
Thanks
