reading more about underscore

have been grinding on the best way to generate a dynamic page from within javascript, especially using knockout...
the resulting page starts to get pretty heavy with configurations stuffed into 'data-bind' attributes... i like keeping the bindings there,
but I would like an easier way to generate the initial layout...
something closer to the model maybe?

going to sleep on it.
