Display as what? An image?

<IMG SRC="data:image/gif,base64;[...]">  where [...] is the data

If not then you will have to give us a little more detail about what you are trying to accomplish

Yes, An Image.
That solution works perfectly in Netscape but not in IE which is my main target.

AFAIK, you have to embed the data in an acivex object in IE.

Not a good idea, because most firewalls will block and it may also triger a virus alert.

I would think the best option might be to convert the data to an image on the server, but I don't have any expertise in that so I don't know how much work it would involve.

yosel2,

As you are new on the site, I am assuming you are not familar with the grading guidelines. Please refer to: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi55

Please note that when an inferior grade is given, it is expected that the member will post a comment to indicate the reason for the grade.

Your request was responded to within 8 minutes of posting and I was the only expert who tried to offer any assistance.  As a result I have been punished with a blot on my grades.  If you assigned that grade because we could not find a good solution then you are punishing me for the sins on the browser manufacturer; hardly fair.  If the grade is because you are assuming that C is an average grade, then after reading the guidelines you should understand that is not the case.  C is the lowest possible grade and constitutes a failure on my part to support your efforts to find a solution.

My services on this site are provided without compensation, and if my efforts are inadequate and unappreciated, then I would prefer that you have the question deleted. The grade is unacceptable, given that I was the only expert to offer help, and the solution you were looking for does not exist. I am offended that you would respond the way you have to my volunteer efforts.
