HTML::Embperl is for web-designers-turned-active-page-scripters.
HTML::Mason is for programmers-turned-programmable-web-page-hackers
They both cover similar problem spaces, but Mason gives you more of the power
in exchange for taking a little more of the responsibility.
Here's a quick check to tell which one of those will work:
If you ever feel the need to "edit" your pages with "an HTML
editor", pick HTML::Embperl.
Trust me on this test. It's pretty accurate. :)
