NAME ^

HTML::HeadParser::Liberal - More Liberal HTML Head Section Parsing

SYNOPSIS ^

    use HTML::HeadParser::Liberal;

DESCRIPTION ^

HTML::HeadParser::Liberal is an evasive module that patches HTML::HeadParser directly (and globally) so that workarounds for certain quirks are enabled.

Currently this module supposrts the following:

Meta names passed to HTTP::Headers are munged

Currently all ":"'s are converted to a hyphen, so things like

    <meta name="twitter:card" ...>

doesn't choke, and you can access this value from HTTP::Headers like

    $h->header('X-Meta-Twitter-Card');

Note that YOU DO NOT NEED THIS HACK if you're using a recent enough LWP. Because of this I was initially going to let this module die a slow death, but then I have since been told that there are environments stuck with old modules, so I guess there are some situations where this module is still useful.
