in reply to HTML tags in perl CGI scripts

Appart from the comments already made on this question, you may also use q and qq, for example:

print qq{<font face = "courier"> blah blah </font>};

You should use qq if you want the variables on the script to expand, like in:

$name = 'Roberto'; print qq{<font face = "courier"> name = $name </font>};

And q if you don't need variable expansion.
