http://ruby-doc.org/core/classes/CGI.html

The CGI class with the HTML extensions will take care of all the HTML 
output. For example:

require 'cgi'

cgi = Cgi.new('html4')

cgi.out {

    cgi.html {
         
             cgi.body {
         
                            "Hello!"
             }
    }
}


It has functions for nearly all HTML tags/forms/session/cookie stuff.
