The "base" and "vlink" tags both belong in the "start_html" method when you're using CGI.pm. There is no "body" function per se in CGI.pm, so by typing it the module is assuming you know what you're doing and pretends it's a valid tag. Your "body" function doesn't "enclose" anything, so CGI.pm makes the perfectly valid guess that "body" is a self-closing tag like "break " and puts the closing slash within the tag per XHTML 1.0 guidelines. You're getting similar problems with "base" which should also be an attribute of start_html, and not it's own function/method.

Try this instead: (untested)

print header, start_html (-title => 'Welcome to 0.0.0.0!', Link ({-rel => 'stylesheet', type => 'text/css', href => + 'style.css'}), base => 'http://0.0.0.0/cgi-bin/dir/', vlink => "Black");
For more info check out the "start_html" docs in the CGI.pm POD.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
