Tiles seems to just replicate the <page:applyDecorator> tag (albeit without the advanced page parsing of SiteMesh). However this is a very small part of what SiteMesh can do.

The strongest attribute of SiteMesh is that the decorators are applied with a filter - therefore you can decorate pages without the pages themselves knowing they are being decorated (so you can apply a single SiteMesh decorator to a site that uses PHP, JSP and ASP if you want).
