Tempted

[ #14984 ]

To the tune of Tempted, by Squeeze.

o/` Tempted to rely on hash order / Tempted but the bug is discovered / What's been going on / Now my algorithm's gone / There's no love here / Tempted to rely on hash order / Tempted but the bug is discovered o/`

HTML::FromText had an unruly and odd bug that happened to come up under Perl 5.8.1. Thanks to Randal for pointing it out. It was random, and seldom reproduced. Sure enough, I was relying on hash order. I'm glad to get better code now that Perl makes good on the promise of no specified order on hashes.
