WML is an off-line HTML generation toolkit. It is intended for HTML generation under *NIX, for large areas (as opposed to single Web pages), and for those who want to use their favorite programming features while generating HTML. It includes a control frontend driving up to nine backends in a sequential pass-oriented filtering scheme: WML reads an input file, applies the specified passes and produces output files. Each backend provides one particular core language. It also ships with a set of include files which provide higher-level features built on top of the backend's core languages. You can write your own custom HTML tagsets for WML to extend its functionality: whatever HTML tag you want, you can program it yourself in Perl.
