You could probably use a web framework but without the language basics you may 
as well be using some off the shelf CMS to be honest. Jifty and Template 
Toolkit are the web frameworks I've used and you need certain Perl skills to 
use them sensibly. There'll be dozens of others out there but personally I 
wouldn't let a Perl developer near my web server until they've got the CGI 
module under their belt.

I'm happy to push Perl but not down people's throats!
