True. But as I read it, the question was "does *ht://Dig* do this?" So my
answer was no.

PHP or CGI would do this nicely. Then again, there are other
document-publishing systems on UNIX that do this already... No use
repeating the effort...

(Of course if someone wants to contribute a CGI wrapper or PHP code to do
this, I'd be glad to put it on the website.)
