Can HTML 3 allow our customers to upload their own pages?

Question:
I would like to have our customers upload their own pages to our virtual server, however, we can't give individual telnet or ftp access. Is their a way to use the file upload extension in HTML 3 that would allow an individual to upload a file into a specific directory, in other words simulate non-anonymous ftp access?

Answer:
You can do file uploads using HTTP rather than FTP, but the Web server software has to support the PUT command. As far as I know, the only server that supports the PUT command at this time is from Netscape. Also, the browser needs to support the PUT command as well. Netscape Navigator Gold lets you upload pages using this aspect of the HTTP protocol, but that is the only combination I know of that works.
