Truly interactive HTML

In my reading of various HTML docs I haven't noticed (or understood)
how to have the user send a file (e.g. of text, image or audio) to a
script on the server. What I want is a way to have an "attach" button
in the document. When the button is pressed, the client would query
the user for filename(s). When the "submit" button is pressed the
file(s) would be attached (MIME-style) to what the client ships off to
the server. The server would then return something based on an
"analysis" of what the user sent.

This seems a rather obvious need, so I'm hopefull I've missed
something; please enlighten me.
