I believe the point the monk above was making is that "HTML IS NOT PIXEL PERFECT".

You're at the whim of the fonts the end user has chosen, their preferred display size, differences in rendering, and more.

If you absolutely must have something be pixel perfect use an image, PDF, or similar.

[Your Mother]: :P
[LanX]: Moma knows best! ;-)
[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/
[LanX]: How to make a CPAN Module Distribution from 2002
[Your Mother]: Dist::Zilla is kind of the nuclear option. I set it up back in the day but it's really targeted at authors who are managing MANY modules and want to automate everything.
[erix]: perlancar should know ;)
[LanX]: see warning
