in reply to MySQL, text box anomaly

Boo's got the answer, but technically, you should always quote the values of attributes in HTML, even if it's just a single word (it's required in XML, but even in HTML3 and 4, it's highly suggested, otherwise you have undefined behavior). Thus, you should be outputting:

print "<input type=\"text\" name=\"address\" value=\"$result[0]\">";

It's not what you know, but knowing how to find it if you don't know that's important

    The qq operator is my close friend. It helps you escape from the escapes. :)

    print qq(<input type="text" name="address" value="$result[0]">\n);
