I'm not sure I understand what problem you are really trying to solve or
how anyone would know for sure when the problem has really been solved.

I don't think that Oracle's 9i interMedia, is germain to what you want to do.
>Let’s say I have a web-based form.

The webform client is a piece of s/w called a Browser.
It does not necessarily have a "desktop" associated with it.

Which is a faulty assumption.
>Once the image is in the control,
What needs to be done when any control/object that is part of the form changes? I've always had to recompile the form to make the change
available to others.

I don't think so.
With free advice, you get what you paid for it. ;-)
You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
The average person thinks he's above average!
For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
