Using Smalltalk Bytecode on the World Wide Web

      A method for implementing independent web server applications
using Smalltalk is disclosed.  The application or part of the
aplication is transfered from the server to the client for execution.

      This invention proposes using Smalltalk bytecode as a form of
Worldwide Web (WWW) executable document.  The bytecode is transferred
to the client machine and executed by a Smalltalk runtime engine.

      The execution of the bytecode could be done seemlessly by
utilizing a browser's available hooks or by modifying the browser to
recognize a designated Smalltalk bytecode specifier.  In either case,
the browser calls Smalltalk runtime engine to execute the bytecode.
