NAME
       Template::Plugin::HTML - Plugin to create HTML elements

SYNOPSIS
	   [% USE HTML %]

	   [% HTML.escape("if (a < b && c > d) ..." %]

	   [% HTML.element(table => { border => 1, cellpadding => 2 }) %]

	   [% HTML.attributes(border => 1, cellpadding => 2) %]

DESCRIPTION
       The "HTML" plugin is a very basic plugin, implementing a few useful methods for generating
       HTML.

METHODS
   escape(text)
       Returns the source text with any HTML reserved characters such as "<", ">", etc.,
       correctly esacped to their entity equivalents.

   attributes(hash)
       Returns the elements of the hash array passed by reference correctly formatted (e.g.
       values quoted and correctly escaped) as attributes for an HTML element.

   element(type, attributes)
       Generates an HTML element of the specified type and with the attributes provided as an
       optional hash array reference as the second argument or as named arguments.

	   [% HTML.element(table => { border => 1, cellpadding => 2 }) %]
	   [% HTML.element('table', border=1, cellpadding=2) %]
	   [% HTML.element(table => attribs) %]

DEBUGGING
       The HTML plugin accepts a "sorted" option as a constructor argument which, when set to any
       true value, causes the attributes generated by the "attributes()" method (either directly
       or via "element()") to be returned in sorted order.  Order of attributes isn't important
       in HTML, but this is provided mainly for the purposes of debugging where it is useful to
       have attributes generated in a deterministic order rather than whatever order the hash
       happened to feel like returning the keys in.

	   [% USE HTML(sorted=1) %]
	   [% HTML.element( foo => { charlie => 1, bravo => 2, alpha => 3 } ) %]

       generates:

	   <foo alpha="3" bravo="2" charlie="1">
