in reply to print multiple lines

Just to add, it isn't working because everything is taken literally in double quotes. So, this means that you have to backslash everything that you want to show up (</tr> should be <\/tr>). There are many other ways to print stuff like that. You can use here documents, qq, q, or just use a similarly long statement something like...:

print "<TR><TD>hi hi hi hi",'</tr></tD>';

Note that variation of quotes there. This will work as expected and print out the </tr></td> as you expected, without the Perl interpreter's interaction.

UPDATE: I now look at it and think I am wrong. But, I do now that you can always print HTML the right way, with, of course :-). Other than that I do not know what is wrong...

    / prints fine... it is \ that is a problem...
                    - Ant HTML seems to come out funny when I put a / in there.
