I intended to add that info but forgot...
I run IIS on W2K, python 2.4.1 and PIL 1.1.5.

If possible I'd rather separate the HTTP/HTML-stuff from image creation.
I'd like to have an HTML file that refers to a py-file that creates images
which are returned somehow (sys.stdout or something else in memory) and
incorporated within the HTTP-response.

Yes, I believe so too. Something like this, as suggested by Benjamin:
sys.stdout.write('Status: 200 OK\r\n')
But it does not work for some reason!? Besides, I was hoping for a solution
which could skip the HTTP-header related stuff...
