      I know a little. The camel book states "... @* should generally appear on a
      picture line by itself."

      For the format, experiment with

      format MULTILINE =
      @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      $FORM{'choice1'} $FORM{'choice1quantity'} $FORM{'choice1amount'}
      .
