    You will need an app (application) to run the script. A CGI will do. Go to http://www.bignosebird.com and look for their CGI section. They have a free e-card script that is very easy to install and run. However, you will need access to your host's CGI bin to use it. It even has a feature that allows viewers to add a picture from their own hard drive.

    We already do an interactive card that utilises Cold Fusion basically as a back-end server. We wrote a custom script for it over 18 months ago.

    CGI, PHP, ASP they all can do it. There are some hidden problems in doing it such as dynamic directory creation and of course the enevitable expiry. But once you've got that worked out it all works out.

    My advice is go with Cold Fusion, it's now firmly in the Macromedia stable and all the required calls are well integrated into the language. Also, it will definitely become far more tightly integrated into Flash when V6 comes out. At least thats unofficially what Macromedia are saying

    But above all its far easier to script in
