Your welcome. I try to help as much as I can in these forums because I have learned a lot from them. Enough to enable me to develop a new business model for myself and change my development focus towards something that will be more enjoyable to me in the years to come.
Actually the CGI script that I wound up writing does the job quite well, including parsing the header file, loading images, parsing the description text file, parsing the footer file and building the page, all based on the query string in the URL.
Being CGI challenged, I was reluctant to tackle it, but it wasn't as bad as expected, and turned out well.
If anyone else has a need for this type of script, let me know.
