Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9934286A1] A method and apparatus is provided that is capable of distributing data within a file having an HTML format. A first process creates the data, encodes it in a known format such as MIME Base64, and embeds the data within a comment section of an HTML file. A second process, preferably implemented as a browser plug-in application, is used to extract the data from the HTML file and store the data in a separate data file. A third process creates an HTML file that launches an applet that uses the data, and contains applet parameters including the paths to the separate data files in which the extracted data resides.
