It seems that they just fetch the tiff and then write "Fetched 
%i<br/>\n" into the page.

The important thing then is to flush the stdout, so that the data is 
actually transmitted over the network. And I guess you have to provide a 
header that accounts for the number of bytes you want to write (the 
total bytes of the html-page that is), by specifying something equals or 
maybe greater than the overall page.
