Creating encrypted fields from a browser

I'm writing an application to create documents from the Web. I encrypt several fields. The agent runs as the Web user checks them off. But if I go into Notes to look at the document, I can't see the encrypted fields. I can, however, access the fields from the Web. I think it is encrypted with the server's public key. Is there any way to use the public key of the person who is logged into the Web so it can be viewed by that user on the Web or in Notes? The client is 5.0.11. The server is 5.0.10.
Without testing your code, here is my best guess... I think you are correct that the agent is running under the server's ID, so the fields are encrypted with the server's public key. Another problem is that field-level encryption is not supported for Web access, so the design of your application needs to be reconsidered. Finally, Web users only have a username/password for Domino access, they don't have a public/private key pair (at least not that Domino knows about).
