in reply to Highly Orthogonal Web Application Development with HTML_Tree

I'm glad to see Paul finally put HTML::Tree on CPAN (HTML::Tree clashes with the namespace of another module, but while CPAN won't find the bundle name 'HTML_Tree' it will find the bundles with an 'HTML::Tree' module including HTML_Tree, BTW, a couple of the later bug fixes are mine). I used this once for a project and liked it, but couldn't sell anyone else in the shop on it.

And while I'm sure its good for some things, it got more awkward to use as I had to make it fit an existing framework (e.g. you had to have valid HTML, but I was working with broken HTML which looked different when I fixed it and the PHB's didn't like the looks of the valid version). In retrospect, maybe that wasn't the best project to use it on :)

    HTML::Tree is by Sean M. Burke also. You are right, runrig, thanks I will notify the author.
