in thread HTML In CGI Scripts.

To your list I'd add:

  3.5.   Print using CGI.pm's HTML generation

Each method (well, except for #1. Yech.) has it's place, and they all work, but I think you've definitely captured the evolutionary aspect of this topic. :-)

    You're right of course. I realised that later.

    But looked at another way, it's almost on its own list. It doesn't mix HTML and Perl at all. You get purity at the expense of no longer being able to see your HTML as HTML.

    Mind you, somewhere recently, Merlyn posted (boasted) about his script which reversed the process and turned HTML into CGI.pm data structures.

    Can anyone come up with that link? It's certainly an intriguing Third Way of approaching workflow -- get your designers to come up with HTML, slurp it into CGI.pm, then throw it away? Given valid code it's not unreasonable... Hmmm...
