I did mention if you stay away from FP extensions it works great for HTML.
I don't know why people mess around with those things.  Your example is of
just that.

When you're simply drawing out a page, no input or output, it works just
fine.  If you're going to be doing CGI, DON'T use FP extensions.  It's that
simple.  Which, is what your example shows.
