Presumably if that was an option he wouldn't be streaming it to the browser in the first place?

Sorry, but why need to send the TIFF image by URI:data scheme?

If you put the TIFF's absolute path in <param name="src"
value="/ablosute/path/tiffdocument.tif"> this must run fine.

PS: I learned a lot too from Scott Klements :)

Thank you for all of the responses.

My first task was to learn about Base64. I learned a lot from Scott
Klements (thank you!) article
http://systeminetwork.com/article/base64-built-ibm-i .

Since then I have tried several things. As previously mentioned, we use
AlternaTIFF to view our tiff images. Their documentation suggests a number
of methods to embed TIFF documents with HTML. At the moment, the most
promising seems to be the OBJECT tag. Their example looks like this -

<object width=200 height=200
classid="CLSID:106E49CF-797A-11D2-81A2-00E02C015623">
<param name="src" value="tiffdocument.tif">
<param name="negative" value="yes">
</object>

Note: the value for CLASSID forces the browser to use the AlternaTIFF
viewer.

I then searched how to use Base64 with the OBJECT tag and came up with this
-

<object id="test" width=100% height=75%
classid="CLSID:106E49CF-797A-11D2-81A2-00E02C015623"
data="data:application/x-oleobject;base64, .......Base64 data..........
">test2</object>

My problem is thast I am not sure that the encoding is properly working. I
searched for sites that would test Base64 data as well as sample Base64 data
- but I had no luck.

Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions?

Thanks,

Joe

Subject: 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
