The first step in building an ASP application is to create an ASP page. ASP pages are simply plain text files that have an .asp filename extension. An ASP page contains optional text (usually HTML and/or client-side scripts) interspersed with one or more ASP script blocks for interpretation by the server.
Any valid HTML page can be a valid ASP page, enabling the Web developer to easily transform a static Web site into a dynamic Web site by adding ASP scripts to existing HTML pages. With Sun Chili!Soft ASP, you can write scripts in VBScript or JScript. Saving the page with an *.asp filename extension tells the Web server how to process the script commands.
