Default Content-type: text/html\n\n - needed every time?

Code:
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
When writing a Perl script for web-based usage is the above line required all the time? If so, is it a replacement for the classic <html> tag????

No - what you're doing is just a part of the HTTP, normally handled silently by your webserver. With html pages, your webserver inserts the http headers automatically. You could use something like CGI.pm or HTML ::Template to generate pages in different ways without having to print the headers yourself.

Here is the spec for HTTP 1:
