I think you should be able to do that using a Content-Type: multipart/mixed

the output for your cgi should look like this:

[http server headers]
Content-Type: multipart/mixed;border=ThisRandomString-----

Content-Type: text/html;version=2.0

[your html here]
Content-Type: audio/au (or whatever it is)
