1. How many questions can i have in this file?

As many as you want



2. Can I have multiline questions?

Theoretically, yes, but it is currently broken. sorry.



3. Can I include html codes in with the questions & answers

You sure can!



4. How do I signify questions?

put a "q" on a line by itself, then as many lines as you need for the question,
then an "a" on a line by itself, and as many lines as you need for the answer.
Then just leave a single empty line before the next question.



5. Can you help me write this file for my FAQ?

Nope. That's all you.



6. How do i change the output file? I don't want to overwrite my index.html file!

One of the lines in the .pl source file defines the name of the output
file. You can change this to be whatever you want. Same with the data file.
They're both configurable by editing that source file.
