I immediately thought HTML::Template or jQuery.

Here's an HTML::Template approach:

<table class="newsitems"> <tr> <th>Title</th> <th>Author</th> </tr> <tmpl_if list> <tmpl_loop list> <tmpl_if name="__odd__"> <tr style="background-color: #fff"> <tmpl_else> <tr style="background-color: #eee"> </tmpl_if> <td><tmpl_var title></td> <td><tmpl_var author></td> </tmpl_loop> <tmpl_else> <tr> <td>No News Items recorded</td> </tr> </tmpl_if> </table>

Another nice touch is to highlight rows as the mouse hovers over them:

CSS: .follow_mouse tr:hover td { background: #A4D9F7; } /* light blue */ HTML: <table class="follow_mouse">
