If you are already streaming the image, can't you just stream some HTML instead which (as well as the HTML you want to display) includes the image as an image tag within the HTML stream? You would have to take your current image data and base64 encode it first.

For example (not syntax checked)

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<div>
My other stuff
</div>
<div>
<img src="data:image/tiff;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAAUA
AAAFCAYAAACNbyblAAAAHElEQVQI12P4//8/w38GIAXDIBKE0DHxgljNBAAO
9TXL0Y4OHwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==" alt="Red dot">
</div>
</body>
</html>

Subject: [WEB400] How to use "Content-type: multipart..." with CGI

A little back ground -

1) We use CGI (similar to, but not CGIDEV) for our web based applications
2) We have written a web based viewer for our imaging repository,
3) We use Alternatiff to display the tiff images from our web based viewer. These images open in a separate window and are streamed to the browser with a mime type of "Content-Type: image/tiff". This works very well.

Now the question -

I would like to display some other HTML above the image. Thoughts on how this could be done? I have experimented with "Content-type: multipart....", but have not had any luck.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Joe
