Mixing your metaphors, ie. using CGI OO with flat HTML interpolation can get really messy and confusing. You might consider sticking with one, or even better use a templating system if you'll be doing multiple different pages.

These are my favourites (there are many other systems as well):

Here Docs

print <<"HTML"; This is what's called a here doc. HTML

Anything between the <<LABEL and the end LABEL, which must be on a line all by itself, will be interpretted as a string. You don't have to worry about quoting conventions. A straight here doc is like single quoting in Perl ('), but if you add the double quotes around the first label (") perl will interpolate your variables (substitute them).


select REFRESH; print "Test";

"Test" will now be printed to the REFRESH handle. When you select a handle it becomes the active handle. Click the link for more info, and remeber to reset it when you're done!.
