Just to be fair, please note that you easily can output large parts of
verbatim HTML code in perl, too:

print <<'ENDMARKER';
<H1>Here we go</H1>
And some text ...

Using quote marks instead of apostrophes, you even can insert
variables directly:

print <<"ENDMARKER";
<H1>Here we go, dear $name</H1>
And some text ...

I won't go further into languages wars, though! :-)

I'm using both PHP and perl ...
(And MySQL, of course ;-)
