HTML Document Object

The HTMLObject is a set of Perl modules that provides the ability to create Dynamic HTML documents (Framesets, DHTML, etc.). You can generate your code without having to do cookies first, then JavaScript, then the body. As long as the content is output in the correct order, you can generate JavaScript or cookies at any point since the output is not sent to the server until you call the display() method. It attempts to fully support HTML 4.x and XHTML. Helper methods are provided to do cookies, URI encoding, etc. There is a Form processing module which will generate the form, gather the input, and then validate the input, re-displaying the form if errors are encountered with the invalid entries marked as such.
