Well, as graff says, if ti works for you why not. Sure CGI generated HTML isn't so clever, not nowadays anyway. But of course has been around for a long time!!

The idea of using HTML::Template to separate the Perl and the HTML makes sense. Programmers work on the Perl, designers work on the HTML. If you are the only one working on what are Perl scripts with a 1:1 Perl/HTML doc relationship then fine.

Although I have used this trick for very simple scripts I find it a dangerous concept for general purpose use at it 're-integrates' the Perl and HTML, albeit in a more maintainable form than using or just using HERE documents.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
