in thread CGI versus CGI::* modules

Amen to that, but i don't think that WYWSIWYG's are evil, they are just another form of laziness. ;) I recently used Fireworks and Dreamweaver to create the templates for a website. I was handed two Photoshop files that contained the entire front page and an auxiliary page. I used Fireworks to splice up the images, and (even though Fireworks generates HTML) Dreamweaver to create the HTML. Next, add the template tags, and start coding your design. Honestly, i should mention that i had to use PHP for this site, but i was able to utilize PHP-HTML::Template.

Another simpler (and free) way to start off templates is with HTML Tidy. Forgive my bias of operating systems:

$ echo 1 | tidy -asxhtml > skeleton.tmpl
Of course, remaining XHTML compliant is up to you after that, but shouldn't be hard with tools like available.

One of the kicks i get out of using HTML::Template (well, templates in general) is that i can atcually switch my "mode of thinking": when i am working on the script/module i think like a programmer, but when i am working on the template i think more like a programmer thinking like a designer. ;)

    Yo Sappy! c'mere; I need a box
    /me stands on box

    So-called WYSIWYG web page editors are propagating a lie -- the same kind of lie that Font, Color, and Size menus in e-mail user agents tell. The righteous use manly-man type text editors for their HTML coding. :)

    /me steps down from soap-box
