in thread XML::Twig generating invalid XHTML output??

Could it be that you're suppose to use twig_handlers instead of twig_roots, since you don't want body to become a root node? The example from the module's documentation is: (irrelevant details omitted)

my $twig=XML::Twig->new( twig_handlers => { title => sub { $_->set_gi('h2') }, # Change title tags to h2. para => sub { $_->set_gi('p') }, # Change para to p. hidden => sub { $_->delete; }, # Remove hidden elements. list => \&my_list_process, # Process list elements. }, pretty_print => 'indented', # Output will be nicely formatted. );

    Looks like that works too! Hmmm. I've read places which suggest using handlers, and others that suggest roots, wonder why/which is better?

      The difference appears to be what they generate. root is good if you want to extract portions of an XML doc (because it skips the stuff outside the roots), whereas handlers appear to be the way to go to transform an XML doc. At least, that's what I deduced, having no experience with XML::Twig before now.
