Well, of course there's no way that generating code programatically is going to be any faster than static strings. However, I have to say it over and over: Speed is not everything. Before you worry about speed, figure out how slow your solution is. Chances are it's unnoticeable.

print start_html( PAGE_TITLE ), h1( PAGE_TITLE ), start_form( -method=>"GET", -action=>$q->self_url ), input( {type=>"text",name=>"text",size=>40, value=>$text} ), input( {type=>"text",name=>"width",size=>5, value=>$width} ), +" pixels wide", submit( -value=>"Muck!" ), end_form(), table( {border=>1,cellspacing=>0,cellpadding=>0}, Tr( th( "Original" ), th( "Mucked" ) ), Tr( td( img( {src=>$filename} ) ), td( img( {src=>"mucked-$filename"} ) ), ), # tr ), # table end_html();
You can see the entire structure of the page right there. I can't goof up closing TABLE tags (a particular bane of Netscape), everything has to be well-formed, etc etc etc. Is that worth a few milliseconds of execution time? In my book, yes.
