HTML::Template also makes it easy and clean to make other form elements sticky. it lets you just associate the CGI object with the template:

so in my code i can do:
and in the template:
inner_loop.tmpl is factored out into its own template so i can reuse it all over the place. it just contains:
i don't know, i guess i just can't stand the thought of any of my output html being generated by CGI.pm and not totally controlled by my templates. that way if the designer wants to add a size, or class attribute to the select, they don't have to ask me to add it to the perl code.
