Why don't you copy the contents of Data::HTMLDumper into a sub of your own and customize it? (license permitting)

    I had begun to do this, after an unsuccessful attempt to contact the author of the module.

    Data::HTMLDumper pretty much takes the output of Data::Dumper and uses regular expressions to replace characters (such as {, }, ], and =>) with HTML table elements. To me, this seems like a roundabout way of handling this.

    If I'm going to create a module to generate HTML from a data structure, I'd prefer to have one conversion only: from the actual data structure to the final HTML.
