The OS programmers are using a Windows server (I think with ASP or some 
such MS technology).  From this they can call the Windows DLL version of 
the transform, then pass the results back to the HTML output.  I was not 
involved in that part of the project, but there is definitely some Free 
Pascal generated code running on their server!
