Thanks for the suggestion, but ... to be more explicit, the situation
for which I'm (not very hopefully) seeking a solution is one in which
the web host is both dumb and restrictive.  They are not running
Apache, they don't supply PHP or a CMS or a database, and they don't
allow user-uploaded CGIs of any sort to be executed.  The full extent
of server-side customization possible is to drop a file called
"index.htm" in the directory which will then be served up instead of a
dumb listing.  Everything else has to happen in the browser.

The Text-to-Image firefox plugin (
) combined with a plain directory listing like the earlier example
Sorin posted (
) produces almost exactly the display I care about, but obviously
requires firefox plus a plugin, whereas I'd like something that loads
into any browser when you visit the site.  Also that plugin is
reportedly no longer maintained and has some bugs that affect other

I should probably be looking for something written in flash, I
suppose.  In any case this is off-topic for CentOS so I'll drop it
