I'm not sure if I get what you are doing fully..
You seem to be mucking about with big intepolated strings when you
should be using a real templating system.
Have you considered using Template Toolkit rather than string/text manipulation?
I know that doesn't answer your immediate problem, but if you continue
along your current lines rather than switching to something like
Template Toolkit things will only get harder and more unmanagable.
