Your html still has some problems, but some are easily fixed by simply revising the quoting. Some may frown, and with reason, at this use of a 'heredoc' but it "just works" for a one-off:
#!/usr/bin/perl use 5.012; my $protein = "chuck steak"; my $heredoc = <<END <table border="1" width="50%" bgcolor="#CCFFFF"> <tr><td><b> Peptide sequence frame 1</b></td></tr>\n <tr><td>$protein </td> <td>also 'walnuts'</td></tr> </table> END ; print $heredoc;


<table border="1" width="50%" bgcolor="#CCFFFF"> <tr><td><b> Peptide sequence frame 1</b></td></tr> <tr><td>chuck steak </td> <td>also 'walnuts'</td></tr> </table>

Note the newline at the end of line 09; your empty tr></tr> will provoke complaints from some validators.

Better, however, to devote a couple hours to familiarizing yourself with CSS1 and 2. And better yet to follow the broad guidance provided by blue_cowdawg ( above ) and to use such CSS constructs as "max-width: nn%" to assure that the wraps work (...err, semi-work.....) based on the user's current screen width.

[GrandFather]: It's either lines that your browser won't split (no white space) or nodes with <pre> tags which ought to be code tags
[GrandFather]: I haven't noticed the problem for a while, but it can be hard to find the nasty node. If you do find it, consider it and with luck a janitor will fix it
