No answers, just questions--

Are you serving this through Workstation Gateway or some other means? I
think INet's Webulator can serve spooled files?

Alternatively, you might take a look at, a feature of OS/400, the
followup to DB2WWW.

The new Host-On-Demand has an API of Java classes that can be used to
present AS/400 info--don't know it applies here, but...

Good luck, I'll be interested in other replies
