Delivering dynamic content using cgi module

This problem seems to need a more precise specification. Do you
want a single CGI program to be able to return *either* HTML text, a
GIF or a JPEG image? Or do you want to return all three in a
single HTTP response?
If the latter, this seems doomed to failure (IMHO: there may be
things I am not considering here). Normally a single document
will have a single Content-Type. If a document of MIME type
text/html includes graphics it will do so by reference, using
the HREF attribute of <IMG> tags, and the browser will use a
separate HTTP transcation to download each of these graphics.
Or have I completely misunderstood your question?
