in thread I use for

XHTML, is nice... but the <br /> (br with a space then the empty element delineating slash) thing seems like a bit of a hack which is neither XML nor HTML... then again, I have only fooled with XML and never really made a full app with it. And who know which if any browsers would barf at such a syntax. Mad love to the everything engine, though.

On the topic of the poll, I must be honest and say I've used to generate entire pages, just do forms, and parse form variables from forms I wrote by hand. The other day in irc, chromatic gave me the tip of HTML::Template which really helps things out when trying to separate formatting (HTML) from code. I highly recommend it. It shortened my latest job by at least 100 lines.

    Actually, since I have started learning XHTML, I have used the <br /> as in my post here, and I have
    yet to see a browser complain or improperly render the layout. And as far as I remember, XML does use the
    space and closing slash on empty elements. I don't know how far XHTML will be accepted in it's current
    incarnation, but we'll see. I guess the biggest reason I don't use for the actual layout is because
    you can't specify with DTD you want to use. I guess that's possible with HTML::Template? I need to read more
    on that.
