in reply to Web-designing using PERL

Without playing too much with semantics, yes. You can have dynamic webpages using Perl. This website is a testament to that. But it's limited if you want to create web apps that emulate desktop apps. Javascript is your best bet there. But as a server sided language, Perl rocks. For templating, Perl rocks. Just need to throw a little javascript in the pot if you want truly responsive uis like Gmail.
