Yes, for example to take client input from an HTML form and say search a
database on the server. A single server application.

But as I understand it, CGI cannot easily set up the sort of automatic
"chain reaction" I referred to involving possibly hundreds of different servers.

There has to be a simple and standard protocol in place to allow this. Maybe
HTML is not the best place to do this. A neural-network type structure has
been suggested instead and this is probably preferable, but the resistance
to scrapping HTML would be immense.

Thanks for the reply
