There are many techniques but a simple one is using something like
TXMLWriter, see here http://www.berenddeboer.net/delphi

In many cases it is far more helpful to really see this as emitting
document markup, with css for styling and javascript for progressive

Don't bring your Delphi habits over, you need to look at HTML
technology very differently.

If you order your win32 calls wrong, what happens then? Where is your
win32 call validator?

But see above, using a tool like TXMLWriter you can make sure you
invalid HTML is detected immediately, although at run-time.
