Subject RE: embedded HTML tags

Thanks for your prompt reply, I appreciate it. But [+ local $escmode=0; $my_variable_with_html_data;
+] generates errors in new version2. So I just included in other block and it works fine.
Have a great day.

If all you want to do is include the data in the page that is output,
need to tell embperl not to html-escape it when it prints it out. You
do this on the fly like so:

[+ local $escmode=0; $my_variable_with_html_data; +]

Have a look in the documentation for escmode for a fuller explanation.

If you want to process the HTML snippet with embperl (to fill in form
pieces, for example) as it is being printed out then:

[- Execute({input => \$my_variable_with_html_data, %other_execute_args})

Again, the documentation for Execute will help you here.
