FYI: this would have been more on-topic in one of the inetserver groups.
Your result means that your page is not being processed by asp.dll. A couple
things to check:
1. Is ASP locked down on your web server? See http://classicasp.aspfaq.com/general...asp-pages.html
2. Is the extension on this page .asp? If you have named it something.htm,
then it will not be recognized as containing ASP code ...
