The syntax is similar to blaze-html, but haste-perch uses the HTM-DOM in
the browser to create DOM elements. blaze-html creates a html bytestring in
the server that the browser must load.
It uses Haste.DOM
Perch assemble a sequence of DOM calls that create the HTML tree directly
in the browser. so you can create an application that run fully in the
The tree can change depeding on different actions done by the user by
changing the HTML tree dynamically. It is possible to create dynamic

>> div $ do
>> div $ do
>> p "hello"
>> p ! atr "style" "color:red" $ "world"
>> return ()
>> Creates these element:
>> <div id= "idelem"> <-- was already in the HTML
>> <p> hello </p>
>> <p style= "color:red"> world </p>
