I am trying to set up a PERL script that prints a web page to the screen as well as setting a cookie up on the client. When I try to do this with the following code:

print "Set-Cookie: id=$id\;";
print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";
print<<web;
 <HTML>
<head><title></head></title>
<body bgcolor=white>
  <CENTER>
 <table width=450>
<th bgcolor=navy colspan=4><center><font color=yellow>The Following was added to
 your shopping basket:</font></center></th>
<tr bgcolor=yellow>
    <td>Quantity</td>
And so on....

It ends up setting the cookie, but then prints all the HTML code as plain text. Anyone know why this is happening and how to prevent it?

Thanks
