       Implements HTML tags in a browser non-specfic way conforming to 3.2 and
       above HTML specifications.

       @href = ht_a( $url, $text, @extra )
	   This	function returns a fully formed	href tag. "$url" and "$text"
	   are required. "@extra" can contain any other	tags to	add to the
	   href	such as	"CLASS='my_href_class'"	or an other options a href may

       @bold = ht_b( @text )
	   This	function takes an array	or a string of text and	then wraps it
	   in ""<B">" tags. It will always return an array regardless of the

       $br = ht_br()
	   This	function simply	returns	a ""<BR">" html	tag, it	takes no

       $checkbox = ht_checkbox(	$name, $value, $form_value, @params )
	   This	function generates individual checkboxes.  "$name" is the name
	   of the checkbox. "$value" is	the value to set for this checkbox.
	   "$form_value	is the currently selected value, for a checkbox	to be
	   checked the $value must be exactly equal to $form_value. An %in
	   hash	with a key of $name may	also be	used for $form_value. @params
	   is passed directly to the end of the	checkbox, this can be used for
	   javascript or arbitrary html.

       $div = ht_div( %attributes )
	   This	takes an optional hash of attributes for a div tag and returns
	   a scalar containing an opening div tag.

       $udiv = ht_udiv(	)
	   Returns an ending div tag.

       $form = ht_form(	$action, @extra	)
	   This	function takes the action of the form in the first variable
	   "$action" any other options should be passed	in through "@extra".
	   The "@extra"	array should consit of a valid form tag	in the form

       @form = ht_form_js( $action, @extra )
	   This	function behaves exactly the same way the "ht_form" function
	   works, save this function adds a javascript 'anti-click' routine
	   which should	keep people from submitting a form more	than one for
	   double clicking the submit button.

       @h = ht_h( $level, @text	)
	   This	function takes a "$level" which	is an integer between 1	and 6
	   corisponding	to the h1 ... h6 tag that is used, there is not
	   checking on the value of the	integer	so any value of	level is
	   acceptable to the function if not as	valid html. The	"@text"	is
	   wrapped in the "h" tags.

       @help = ht_help(	$help_root, $type, $ident )
	   this	function takes the help	root, generally	'$site{help}' a	type,
	   either 'category' or	'item' and the ident of	the help item. It
	   returns and array of	html containing	a link that will generate a
	   help	popup.

       @i = ht_i( @text	)
	   This	function takes "@text" and wraps it in ""<I">" tags.

       @img = ht_img( $url, @extra )
	   This	function creates an ""<IMG SRC=..">" tag. "$url" is the	url to
	   the image, "@extra" should contain any extra	tags that the image
	   tage	should contain.	The "@extra" array should contain values of
	   the form "WIDTH='10'".

       @input =	ht_input( $name, $type,	$value @params )
	   This	function creates html textareas, checkboxes, text and hidden
	   elements.  "$name" is the name of the element in the	html as	used
	   in the form,	"$type"	should be the type of the input	element, ( ie:
	   textarea, checkbox, text, radio, or hidden ). "$value" is either a
	   hash	containing the text as a key, or the variable itself.
	   "@params" contains anything else that needs to be passed to the
	   input type such as length or	the like "LENTGH='1'".

       $lines =	ht_lines( @lines )
	   This	function takes the "@lines" array and concatanates it together
	   with	newlines ""\n""	to create a single string.

       $p = ht_p()
	   This	function takes no arguements and returns a simple "<P">	tag.

       @popup =	ht_popup( $url,	$text, $winname, $height, $width )
	   This	function creates a special html	"ref" call. It creates a link
	   to a	new javascript window with the properties specified. The
	   "$url" is the URL of	the new	window,	"$text"	is the text to be
	   displayed by	the link.  "$winname" is the name of the window	that
	   will	be created. "$height" and "$width" are the height and the
	   width of the	window,	respectively.

       $string = ht_qt(	$string	)
	   This	function will escape the html special characters in "$string"
	   and return the specially formated value of the string.

       $radio =	ht_radio( $name, $value, $form_value, @params )
	   This	function generates individual radio buttons. "$name" is	the
	   name	of the radio buttion group. "$value" is	the value to set for
	   this	radio button. "$form_value is the currently selected value,
	   for a radio button to be checked the	$value must be exactly equal
	   to $form_value. An %in hash with a key of $name may also be used
	   for $form_value. @params is passed directly to the end of the radio
	   button, this	can be used for	javascript or arbitrary	html.

       @select = ht_select( $name, $size, $value, $multiple, $opts, @items )
	   This	function creates a html	select box. "$name" is the name	of
	   select box for use in parsing the form. "$size" is the number of
	   rows	to show	for the	select box. "$value" is	the a hash reference
	   which contains the value that is currently selected with a hash key
	   of the value	of "$name".  "$multiple" needs only to be defined to
	   create the select box as a multiple select rather than a single
	   select box. "@items"	is an array/hash of the	values of the select
	   box.	$opts will be included directly	into the opening of the
	   select, this	allows tweaky javascript things.

       $submit = ht_submit( $name, $value )
	   This	function creates a submit button with the name of "$name" and
	   the value of	"$value".

       $table =	ht_table( $options )
	   This	function creates an open table tag. It takes a hash reference,
	   $options. The hash reference	should contain key value pairs
	   corresponding to the	table options ie: 'cellpadding', '0',
	   'border', '1' or the	like.

       $tr = ht_tr( $options )
	   This	function creates an open table row tag,	it operates exactly as
	   the "ht_table()" function does.

       @td = ht_td( $options, @data )
	   This	function creates a table data completely from the open td tag
	   to the close	td flag. The options flag works	like "ht_table()" and
	   "ht_tr". The	@data is what should appear in the table data element.
	   To specify no wrap set 'nowrap' => '0' or any value since the
	   function will ignore	the value completely. The @data	is optional,
	   if it is not	provided then the td will just issue an	opening	<td>
	   and the ht_utd function should be used as well.

       $uform =	ht_uform()
	   This	function should	be paried with either "ht_form"	or
	   "ht_form_js"	to close a HTML	form.

       $up = ht_up()
	   This	function returns a ""</P">" tag, for use in conjunction	with

       $string = ht_uqt( $string )
	   This	function reverses the affects of the "ht_qt" function,
	   retuning the	original sting if passed an encoded string.

       $utable = ht_utable()
	   This	function closes	a HTML table. It don't take anything but it
	   sure	give a ""</TABLE">".

       $utr = ht_utd()
	   This	function closes	a table	data. It takes no options.

       $utr = ht_utr()
	   This	function closes	a table	row. It	takes no options.


       Watch out for the context of what the variables return, sometimes it is
       an array	sometimes it is	a string.
