Well, 9 days or so perhaps, but close enough to a week.
About a week or so ago I knew about templating systems, but I didn't really know about them. They have always been useful to me for creating pages that have a custom look from client to client, but run off the same code. Prior to this though, I was the designer and the coder. So if I cheated and generated some HTML in Perl it was no big deal.
For the two projects I did this week I quit using CGI.pm for HTML generation cold turkey, and instead pushed it all off on my friend the web designer. And I've never been happier
Did I mention that I love HTML::Template?
