Abstract

Web server translates CGI program data to Unicode A web server design is disclosed that eliminates CGI programs' codepage translation requirements. The web server translates all CGI programs' data to Unicode. CGI programs can be written to use the Unicode codepage with no additional translation. Background Information Web servers fulfill client requests for information by returning either static or dynamic data. Static data is retrieved from files. Dynamic data is retrieved through use of Common Gateway Interface (CGI) programs.
