Download into MS Word document including images

    Hello world,

    I have an ASP.NET application that returns HTML to the browser that
    should be read by MS Word.
    To do this I set

    Response.ContentType = ContentType.Word
    Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "Report.doc")

    and render the HTML.
    The browser (IE6.0) shows a dialog box which enables the user to Open
    the HTML in Word or save the report to disk.

    So far so good.

    But now I want to include a number of images into the Word document.
    These images are created on the fly during the generation of the HTML
    (so they are not available in a file on the webserver. In fact, for
    each image I've got an System.IO.Stream representing the image).

    I know that there is something like

    <img src="data:image/gif;base64,iVBORw0KG....." >

    to include the image itself in the HTML. This construction is
    understood by Firefox, but not by IE or MS Word.

    So I think I should download the images as seperate files. A
    subdirectory
    in de Temporary Internet Files should be created, the images should be
    saved in this subdirectory and the HTML should refer to those images,
    for example <img src="MyDir\MyImageFile.jgp">.

    Does anyone know how to do this or have any other suggestion?

    Thanks in advance,
    Gerard
