No HTML tags should be in the Perl code
This is a nice dream. However, HTML won't allow it. The best example is in specifying an option in a select list:
<option>2</option> <!-- select this one -->
If HTML allowed you to make the selection in the select tag itself (like <select name="options" option="2">), then this wouldn't be a problem. As it is, there are numerous ways to solve the problem, none of which are particularly satisfying.
I haven't looked at XForms much (though I like what I have read about it), so I'm not sure if it fixes this problem.

Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
