Yes that syntax works for me too, but the code you posted to test the
elsif bug returns MOO2 for me on 5.2 when it should return MOO3.  Does
it return MOO3 for you on 5.2?

Yes that's definitely faster, but I'm wondering about the difference
between == and eq.  I thought eq was slightly faster.

kiltstore.net looks perfect, the main content of scotwebstore.com is
shifted to the right all the way off the page, and there are lots of
major shifting and overlapping problems with scotwebshops.com.  I'm
using Firefox on Linux and my fonts are set to a minimum size
of 16 in the browser.
