HTML-XHTML-Lite version 0.01 ============================ INTRODUCTION This module provides a light-weight alternative to the Perl built-in, CGI.pm, for those who wish for an easy way to produce a well-formed XHTML <head></head>, with Dublin Core metadata. A function to create a footer is provided for completeness and it is even possible to provide body text to return a complete document. Provision is made for the inclusion of links to RSS (or other) feeds and FOAF data. The 'extras' property allows for the insertion of arbitrary elements into the document header. In addition to the generation of XHTML, the function getvars() is included to populate a hash with data from the query string and POST data. This is an unsophisticated equivalent to CGI.pm's $q->para('xyz') functionality. The aim of this module is to help produce content that is both accessible and machine-parseable. For instance, one of the methods of start_page(), nodoctype=>1, is provided purely for the purpose of being able to leave out required components to check that any validation systems being used are actually working. For further information, please see the documentation. A sample application is included.
