I'd add two points as appendices to Masem's highly useful post:
- If you're using ActivePerl, you already have a goodly number of docs in pretty HTML format on your hard drive.

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
