A Client-side Environment for ASP Pages
ASP is a Web technology that relies specifically on capabilities of Microsoft® Internet Information Services (IIS). For this reason, very few commercial products have attempted to provide an ASP-to-HTML converter. The problem with such converters is that you must work in conjunction with the W
eb server to trigger the ASP parser and find the intrinsic objects available. When you double-click on an HTML page from the Explorer shell, you simply ask the browser to retrieve and render the source code of the file. However, when you double-click on an ASP file from Explorer, you cannot ask the browser to translate it into HTML.
