I need to read and output already formatted html code (written to the filesystem by the perl code) using the smalltalk and seaside. I have all the code for finding the file and reading the html-text, unfortunately I can't find a way to output this plain html using seaside. Obviously this won't work:

If you just want to output a some HTML without escaping you can use:
html html: myhtmlfilecontents

If you have a full HTML document you can try something along the lines of:

self session returnResponse: (WAResponse new
		contentType: 'text/html;
		nextPutAll: myhtmlfilecontents;
