in reply to Content-type: html and images ?

Every page element that is not the HTML of the page requires a seperate request/response. For example, a simple HTML page with two images and a linked CSS requires 4 HTTP connections (one for the page, the CSS, and one for each image).

You could roll the HTML and the image into one script.

Sample page:

<html> <head> <title>This is my page!</title> </head> <body> <p>A line of text</p> <img src=""> </body> </html>

The perl:

use strict; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new(); my $image = $q->param("image") or ''; if($image ne ''){ print $q->header("image/gif"); ## print out the rest of image here } else{ print $q->header(); print $q->start_html("This is my page!"); ## print out HTML here... }

Untested. While you're here... SIGN UP!

[LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
[LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
[LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
LanX hates UTF8 for causing knots in his brain and stomach
[Corion]: LanX: Yes, that's the main problem - you have lots (and lots) of workarounds in various places and stages of the processing, and to clean that mess up requires action across the complete codebase. And it's almost impossible to do it piece-by-piece
