I'd use a bit of Javascript for the first (so long as your project
doesn't require everything to be done on the server side), and I'd use
a HTML anchor for the second, rather than doing it with perl.

Please feel free to drop me a mail off-list if you want some links to
web pages with more details on how to do this.
