You should probably look at HTML::Template for your HTML Templates, and
PDF::Template for your PDF Templates.
I can't help but mention XML combined with XSL to produce HTML
wherever necessary and follow the path along FO to PS/PDF wherever
that is needed. Have often used that to create presentations and
printed handouts using the DocBook "Slides" DTD for example.
Again, a rather ill-researched suggestion, but I think this is worth
thinking about if you want to have information independent of multiple
styles of representation.
