Hi Alceu, Actually it is OT from the OP, but sometime you'll get yourself in trouble with

Maybe you want to encapsulate it with CDATA or something, to avoid future issues :) Keep up the good work!

    Gee... now I'm getting borred: nmake ppd just does not work correctly. You're correct, if this XML is tested against a XML validator it will not pass.

    I think I'll stick around with the old and good tarball. Do you know if the PPD/XML is parsed by the ActivePerl repository server? I didn't notice any issue when using this PPD locally.

      The ActivePerl repository doesn't recognize any ppm packages external to it. A ppm client can add external repositories, which generally are local or remote locations containing ppd files, or summary files of such ppd files if there's many of them. It would be a good idea for this if the ppd file is valid xml, as such files are parsed with an xml parser.
      nmake ppd just does not work correctly
      Upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker, then it might.

        Good tip! It worked! With no sweat, here it is:

    Using

    would also work.
