Hi Tom,

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I don't see the problem.  This:

  print $q->start_html(
    -title=>'The Riddle of the Sphinx',
        -language => 'JavaScript',
        -src      => '/javascript/utilities10.js'
        -language => 'JavaScript',
        -src      => '/javascript/utilities11.js'

Prints this:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <!DOCTYPE html
          PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.0//EN"
  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en-US"><head><title>The Riddle of the
  <script language="JavaScript" src="/javascript/utilities10.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  <script language="JavaScript" src="/javascript/utilities11.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Can you provide us with a larger code snippet?  What version of CGI.pm are you using?  Also, when
you say it doesn't work, what output are you expecting and what output are you actually getting?
