in reply to Perl CGI, font color in a table

td ({-style=>"foreground:red"}, escapeHTML("This is a required field") +);
The HTML shortcuts take an optional first argument, a hashref with the elements attributes.

Or you could do:

td (span ({-class=>"required_field"}, escapeHTML("This is a required f +ield")));
And use a style sheet to colour spans of class required_field red. Or you could give the table cell a class (or id) attribute.

[Discipulus]: ah! thanks shmem it works in strawberry 5.24
[shmem]: ah. Introduced in 5.22.0, see perl5220delta
[Discipulus]: if so the previous error is a bit misleading, anyway
[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
[karlgoethebier]: thanks ;-
