PerlPoint::Tags::HTML - PerlPoint tag set used by pp2html


 # declare tags used by pp2html
 use PerlPoint::Tags::HTML;


This module declares PerlPoint tags used by pp2html. Tag declarations are used by the parser to determine if a used tag is valid, if it needs options, if it needs a body and so on. Please see PerlPoint::Tags for a detailed description of tag declaration.

Every PerlPoint translator willing to handle the tags of this module can declare this by using the module in the scope where it built the parser object.

 # declare basic tags
 use PerlPoint::Tags::HTML

 # load parser module
 use PerlPoint::Parser;


 # build parser
 my $parser=new PerlPoint::Parser(...);
