I want to insert a graphical image with its respective TEXT description onto my HTML webpage from my CGI script. Normally if I were to insert the graphical image, I would call my CGI script with the <IMG> tag. Since I need to insert the respectiove text description with the graphics the <IMG> tag is useless now. Presently, to access my special HTML page it calls NPH-T.CGI script.  This script will open the special HTML page and lterally insert the GRAPHICAL IMAGE + TEXT. Its output will reveal the proper HTML page.

Is there perhaps a more effiecent way of doing this?   Perhaps I should use SSI?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

SSI is your answer. Have your HTML page use an SSI such as <!--#exec cgi="insert.cgi"--> then have the CGI return a multipart/mixed MIME type to the browser, sending first the image as one part (image/gif or image/jpeg), then the text as the other (text/html or text/plain).
