Looking again at your original question, you shouldn't use the 204
response if you are returning any data. In other words, don't write
anything after the headers:
put "Status: 204 my descriptive text" & cr
put "Content-Type: text/html" & cr & cr
You can achieve basically the same thing with a standard 200 response
and a Content-length header of zero.
