Web Application Development

I am creating an simple web appliaction
( ie .dll ) and trying to execute it
from my .html file using an

<a href="sample.dll"> press </a>

but the sample.dll is not executing but
it is getting downloading to my machine.

My question is how can i create an .dll
file and make it work in my web browser locally with my personal Web server, i
also installed internet information server files in my machine.

sample code and a how to do procedure is good too.

First of all, if it is a DLL, then it MUST be a ISAPI DLL.  Delphi 3, 4, and 5 allow you to easily create ISAPI DLLs and, since you already has the DLL, I am supposing you go that part covered.

In order to call the ISAPI DLL, you must do it from a FROM HTML object. The code below is an example that calls an ISAPI DLL, using its default GET method:

<form action="datasvr2.dll" method="GET">
        <li><a name="Question-1">Enter your ... in the space
            provided below.</a><p><input type="text" size="50"
            maxlength="50" name="NOME"> <br>
    <p><input type="submit" value="Submit Form"> <input
    type="reset" value="Reset Form"> </p>
