I'm glad to see the Perl News up and running again (many thanks to vroom for doing this).
One of the reasons it was originally taken out of commission was that many people thought http://use.perl.org did a better job of providing Perl-related news.

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
