There is no CGI->html() function, as far as I know. You would have to do what Sinistral did, with sending headers and the complete HTML document.
Also, when writing web applications, a good tip is to use CGI::Carp, like so:
use CGI::Carp qw( fatalsToBrowser ); #Comment out when you release.
my $q = new CGI;
print $q->header( "text/html" ),
$q->start_html( "Status" ),
$q->h1( "Status is ".
$q->param( "StatusFilterSelect" )
I believe that the source code to life is written in Perl :-)

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
