Ah.  Does this mean that you have now done it?  (Sorry, I notice that
German-speakers tend to have problems with using the word "until"
correctly)

Ah, so you haven't done it yet.

Ah, so this would make the rest-of-the-file the __DATA__ to be read
and processed.  Interesting!  I'm not entirely sure whether this would
work, since HTML::TextToHTML already makes use of the DATA handle to
read in its own configuration -- I can't remember what happens with
multiple __DATA__ sections in different files.

Still, it certainly can't hurt to try.
