I find that many applications are mixtures. For example, I would not
use php to template a php page. The topic here is the perl templating
of php and is topical in both these groups.

I've been posting improving perl for a long time here, and ask for the
benefit of the doubt. You wouldn't want me to have to call wade ward,
would you?

Anyways, the problem was that I was running utf-8 characters through
html entities, and if you want to see a bunch of upside-down question
marks, you can do that too.

Q1) If I'm typing on this keyboard and herd the corresponding utf-8
characters between paragraph tags, do I ever need to call HTML::Entities
to sort out what I did?

There's always a bit of html in any properly-phrased question along
these lines.

This counts as successful output, subject to comment:


# captions
my $caption = <$CAPTIONS>;
# I think the next line is a mistake.
# $caption = encode_entities($caption);
printf $fh $template, "${word2}/" . $remote_file, $caption;

There remains a variety of smaller issues, like how to template a
reasonable button capability without wanting to get into forms, where
I'd be all ears.

This is what I've got so far:
