Yes, the authentication (base64 encoded) you can read and evaluate
from CGI (env.-var "HTTP_AUTHORIZATION")

Sorry, I wrote it in a bad way. I added a site from Pi3's documentation to the
last e-mail. It's a html file so I not added the images and linked documents.
However I think it's useful for a short overwiew about Pi3's features.

Please ask John Roy as the responsible for Pi3Perl and the SSL theme.

ISAPI? Perl? Another good thing is Cold Fusion (www.coldfusion.com) but it's
not free.
My common suggestion for you is to get Pi3Web from www.johnroy.com and to read
some of the articles in the mailing list archive too. The server is very
flexible in configuration and supports all of the usual features. I use it since
12/97 and I'm enthusiastic about it.

Had similar problems with a html-upload form and a script I tested with MSIE
3.02 (NS 4.05 worked fine). I made a HowTo document for some special infos
where I published some upload related stuff. (forms/scripts etc.) Maybe it
helps. Send you a separate mail with it 'cause I don't like send this again to
the whole mailing list.
