One of the nice things about Mojo::DOM...

I hadn't been looking there but found at the bottom a simple way to get the DOM into lexical perl that guys like me can understand. I don't get any buttons pushed here, but I'm so pleased with this script that I'm gonna post it. It represents my best achievement yet in getting the DOM information in a format I can read and not blowing me out on STDOUT using Data::Dump.

I would excerpt my beautiful, straight, demarcated logs, but they're covered in symbols that won't render well here.

Give it a shot and let me know if you have any problems.

Thx, marto, I'll keep after it....
