in reply to HTML Tag attribute problems with

bgcolor is not really a tag, but an attribute to the body - tag, so you would have to put:
... -meta=>{'keywords'=>'PMI HR HumanResources', 'copyright'=>'copyright 2001 Kelly Berry'}, -style =>{'src'=>'../style.css'}, -bgcolor =>'blue'); ...

into your code. (Warning: I have not tested that piece of code)
But the body color attribute is already covered with CSS1, so you can put that in with your style-sheet.


updated: ah well, I never used cgi to create html, I just moved from here-docs to templates.
