=head1 NAME

delirium - filter to make your HTML delirious

=head1 SYNOPSIS

delirium < STDIN > STDOUT

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Each character in the stream is given a pseudo-random size and color.
Basically, it turns:

    blah

into:

    b
    l
    a
    h

It really bloats your HTML by a large factor, but it looks interesting
enough to justify its use on special occasions.

I was inspired to write this script when I saw someone post a very
colourful message on the AfterY2K Forum.

    http://www.geekculture.com/ultimatebb/Forum9/HTML/000018.html

Apparently, he used emacs lisp to do this.  Of course, I used Perl.

=head1 OPTIONS

none, yet.
