You might want to look at Catalyst::Helper::View::TTSite as 
a starting point...

As far as the html+css, I'd go with as basic a command-line 
interface as possible, with an option to take the html+css 
files from a different location than the default.  Your "basic" 
interface provides a set of Validated files with some simple 
options, as you mention, and the alt. User-supplied html+css 
assumes the user knows what they want to go where. 

Hope this makes sense; I've not had breakfast yet.
