I tried to reproduce it to take a screen shot, but now it's working okay
for me.  Previously I was seeing a perl section in two-tone, with just
the html areas colorized.

So this is a problem that only comes up after my emacs has been running
for awhile (some of my other mumamo experiments have been locking up
emacs, so I've had to do more fresh restarts than I normally would...).

The reasoning seems to be that the client is asking for html, and that's
what you're going to deliver to them... the fact that Mason is used to
generate the html is an internal detail there's no point in bothering
them with.
