In general, I think that we shy away from reliance on perl (I'm not
entirely sure why, I think it's mainly religious).

In my copy of Netscape Communicator 4.04, the page as it stands looks
somewhat ok, but part of the menu text extends past the yellow region and
out into the main area of the page (of course, I'm using a non-standard
font, but this is another thing you might want to consider :-)
