and, albeit non-perlishly, not
as an alternative to the above suggestions, but as a step beyond, I would strongly that you test at least some of your html against the w3c validator http://validator.w3.org/
. If you use css (recommended), w3c also offers a reasonably trustworthy validator for that.
html is and css can be made sufficiently english-like that it's fairly easy to scan for correctness (certainly it's easier for me than debugging my sorry excuses for scripts). Your creepie-crawlies hide chiefly in the various (and disparate) non-standard performances by browsers. However, a little time invested (say, a few hours) in learning these will let you write html and css that perform reasonably well across (BIG caveat) reasonably current (say, v5 and up in the windoze world) browsers.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
