using \n in a cgi script
Message ID:
Every time I want to use a perl script as a cgi the "\n" ending the
phrases doesn't make it going at the beginning of the next line. Why ?
Several script coming from Perl in Action (O'Reilly) have those "\n"
ending those phrases.
Here are some lines coming from one of them :
sub document_de_garde {
    my $actif = shift;
    return unless $actif;

    print "<H1>Salut\&nbsp;!</H1>\n";
    print "Bienvenue dans notre magasin d'habillement\&nbsp;!\n";
    print "Faites votre choix dans le menu ci-dessous.\n";


If I want to use them a have to change using print p(...); ?
Thanks for response.
