use this:

print "Content-type:/text/html\n\n";

print<<EOF;
<HTML>
<BODY>
<H1> Hello World </H1>
</BODY>
</HTML>
EOF

Take off the "  ; " at last line...

If you're getting an error, then you probably are executing the script (technically speaking).  I'd need to see the source to help debug the script - or at least the problem part.

Also, it depends upon whether you want to execute the script on your local machine, or on an internet server at your ISP.
