You could use a different quoting mechanism for this, so you wouldn't have
to escape your "'s.  :-)

Look in your standard documentation for HERE docs.  A lot of people use
here docs to print HTML.  It makes things somewhat easier to write and to

>print $output;

If the problem starts anywhere after this line, you should ask for help in
a javascript forum.  This is a perl forum.

It seems, at a very quick glance, like your parsehtm.pl script may be
munging your paths.  You might try running that script on a simple test to
see if it causes the changes you are seeing.

Also, I'm not sure that you shouldn't be posting these questions about perl
on unix to the MacPerl - Any Perl list?  Am I not remembering things right?
