'Defaultify' lets you populate any HTML form with default values that you specify-- it parses the HTML to find the tags representing form fields, and alters those tags so that the desired initial values will be set. It's useful for letting a user correct input errors, presenting a form to edit an existing database record (or user account information), maintaining a query form from one results page to the next, etc. HTML::Defaultify lets you completely separate the HTML from the program code, which means a non-technical designer can work on the HTML while a programmer works on the code. Also, it uses existing HTML, so you needn't rewrite old pages in a new format.
